This is the table lamp version based on the original 1955 design. Its translucent white glass diffuser helps to nuance and focus the light. In the language of Finnish functionalism, the Maija series conveyed the feeling of Baltic light from the inside outwards, with a graceful, durable structure reminiscent of the childish honeycomb of naughty honey bee Maya, the heroine of stories and cartoons that originally inspired its name. Dimmer included. Built-in LED. Lifetime: 40.000 h.
Size: w 18 cm and h 33 cm. Weight 1,3 kg.
This Finnish classic comprises hanging and tabletop versions.
Metallic lampshade finished in matte white.
Brass legs finished in matte.
Diffuser in white translucent engineering plastic.

He then completed his training at Le Corbusier's studio. He was also greatly influenced and inspired by the contact with nature of his childhood: "Nature is the best and closest guide for industrial designers."
