The following people and organisations sponsored the Jolabokaflod Gala party held at the Hotel Café Royal on 2 February 2017. We thank them for their generous and welcome support.

Designed by Max Gunawan, Lumio is a modern lighting solution that lets you experience beautiful lighting wherever you are. Closed, the lamp takes the shape of a hardcover book. Open, it becomes a sculptural lamp with the versatility to fit any space.
