Artek 1960s TW001 table lamp by Tapio Wirkkala

Tw_lamp

The designer is perhaps better known for the classic Ultima Thule glassware, but we're equally impressed by this piece of 1960s lighting by Tapio Wirkkala – the Artek TW001 table lamp.

The sharp geometric shape is very much of the era, although it is intended to look like a candle, but should offer much more light than the humble flame from its HD-polyethylene, which is couple with a painted birch base.

That base is available in black or white, with both of the 38cm lights selling for 240 Euros.
