"Maija Mehiläinen' Floor Lamp by Ilmari Tapiovaara

$1,456.68

About

The timeless 'Maija Mehiläinen' lamp series was designed by Ilmari Tapiovaara in 1955. The Finnish designer drew his inspiration from Waldermar Bonsels’ children’s book 'Maya the Bee' (Maija Mehiläinen in Finnish), which is evident in the distinct, beehive-like form. Composed of metal discs placed on top of each other that filter the light beautifully, the lamp provides a very pleasant mood light, but can also provide a lot of functional light due to the dim function. The lamp is equipped with a dimmer and LED lamp. This is a new lamp from a recent production that was only used a few times for a photoshoot. The lamp comes in perfect condition in original box/packaging, see images.
