Measurements of the chair: 95 x 62 x 87 cm. Lisa Johansson-Pape for Orno, floor lamp, brass, leather, Finland, 1950s Stunning floor lamp by Finish designer Lisa Johansson-Pape. Lisa Johansson-Pape designed this lamp for Orno in the 1950s. The thin brass stem rests on a small round base. Leather in a cognac color is wrapped around the stem and adds a soft touch to the metal surface. Eye-catching is the form of the perforated shade. A beautiful round form is hold by the thin stem. Little gaps are arranged in round circles on the stem and are allowing the light to not only shine downwards but also create a striking play of light on the stem itself. Lisa Johansson-Pape (1907-1989) was one of the leading Finnish designers of her time. She is best known for her work in lighting. Johansson-Pape’s career in the design of light fixtures began in 1942 when she designed a number of contemporary design light fixtures for the Stockmann-Orno design light factory. Johansson-Pape also served as an artistic director at Orno. ”It was quite by accident that I became a design light artist. By education, I am a furniture designer, but I had to make lamps during the war. The light fixtures began to interest me to such an extent that I set aside furniture design. I wish to provide every Finnish household with good light”. The materials used in the light fixtures she designed included enameled metal, acrylic and glass. Johansson-Pape’s lamp designs always stressed technical functionality and practical use. Johansson-Pape designed light fixtures for many public spaces, such as hospitals, churches and ships. Lisa Johansson-Pape’s works represented Finland in many international exhibitions, and received much critical acclaim in on the international design stage.
