Tapio Wirkkala is one of the masters of Finnish design. Prolific and versatile artist, he continually shifted between various disciplines. From glasswork to wooden sculptures, from banknotes to furniture design, his purpose was to explore all the possibilities the materials could offer. This lamp is designed as a modular construction adjustable in various positions with a system of counterweight. The graphic brass structure is completed by a mold-blown opal glass light bulb, available in pink and blue. This lamp shows the talent of Wirkkala in balancing between crafts and industrial techniques, and creating objects that are both aesthetic and functional.
Brass and colored glass.
