“Tröag” is the Swedish word for a canoe-shaped wooden bowl used for crushing fruit. During a trip to Lapland, Luca Nichetto was introduced to this object, which is passed on from generation to generation and it has provided the source of inspiration for a longitudinal hanging lamp designed to illuminate work areas like long tables or large open spaces. Troag is composed of a single piece of curved wood rather than a traditional lampshade. Intense yet not blinding, the uniformly diffused light the lamp produces is directed both downwards and upwards thanks to slits running along the top of the wooden shade. Troag is available in three different versions of varying lengths.
