The Secundum is part of the series A, the first designed series of Niklas Jessen and Julia Mülling for Schneid in 2011. This lamp series impresses with its very warm and descent lighting and its new organic shape that suits living- and dining areas perfectly. All lamps of this series persuade through their warm lighting and organic form.
The Secundum creates a comfortable indirect light with its angular wooden slats. This lamp stand for naturally warm light. Due to the elaborate structure of the lamp, the light subtly comes through the thin wooden slats, casts a glare-free light and creates a natural ambiance.
Just like all the other lamps by Schneid, the Secundum pendant lamp is also hand manufactured in Northern Germany. All luminaires of the German enterprise Schneid guarantee highest quality and are produced under fair conditions of work. The used wood comes from sustainable forestry of regional component supplier. The small darker knots of the wood are an essential element of the organism tree and intentionally used for the production of these lamps.
The pendant lamp Secundum by Schneid are equipped with 3 m of textile cable and a high-quality ceiling rose CableCup®.

The morning after he started work with making a rose that could be turned inside out so as to meet all the demands placed on a ceiling rose.
