Yki Nummi Large 'Lokki' Pendant for Innolux Oy

About the Item

Yki Nummi large 'Lokki' pendant for Innolux Oy, Finland. Designed in 1960, Nummi's innovative 'Lokki' is one of the best-known Finnish design classics. The name Lokki comes from the Finnish word for seagull. As Nummi once astutely observed, “People don’t buy lamps, they buy light”. This radiant pendant lamp casts a spectacularly filtered non-glaring light that defines any space. This authorized re-edition is made in Finland with the highest quality materials by Innolux Oy. Price is per item. Six pendants in stock and ready for immediate shipment. Out of stock lead time 3-4 weeks or more. Please note that in-stock availability can change without notice. For time sensitive orders, please inquire prior to purchasing. Single 75 watt max e27 socket; 4.6 ft. of European wired cord with 25 in. hanging beaded metal strand. Yki Nummi (1925-1984) is considered one of the most remarkable mid-century Scandinavian designers. He worked as lighting designer for the Finnish Stockmann-Orno Luminaire factory from 1950-1975 and designed hundreds of light fixtures during this period. Nummi’s best-known luminaires are the Modern Art table lamp and the Lokki pendant lamp, also known as “The Flying Saucer”. Nummi first studied mathematics and physics at university after World War Two. Afterward, he took a degree in decorative painting at the Institute of Applied Arts in Helsinki in 1950. Based on his education, Nummi had a firm theoretical foundation, especially in the relationship of light and color. Yki Nummi was a Pioneer in his field particularly when it came to designing acrylic lamps. As a new material at the beginning of the 20th century, acrylic brought countless new possibilities to the design of lamps. In fact, Nummi used plastic quite without preconceptions. In his view, the interesting features of acrylic were its moulding capability, homogeneous nature and a better impact strength than that of glass. In addition to designing lighting, Nummi was an expert in color schemes and design. Between 1958 and 1975, Nummi worked at Schildt & Hallberg’s Tikkurila paint factory as head of the factory’s design and planning department and participated in R & D for the new paint mixing system that produced innovative color charts. Yki Nummi participated in a large number of exhibitions and trade fairs. He was awarded gold medals for his works at the Milan Triennials of 1954 and 1957.    Not UL listed, but recommended UL listing available from authorized 3rd party vendor upon request for an additional fee. Made to order. All sales are final.
