Ilmari Tapiovaara 1950s Maija floor light


A Finnish design that’s now over 50 years old – but the Santa & Cole Maija floor light will still make an impact in any room.

Designed by Ilmari Tapiovaara in 1955, the lamp is not dissimilar to a pile of stacked plates, combining to create a luminous honeycomb effect. There’s also a very 1950s matt brass base, with the whole thing standing at around 70cm tall (which means it should be good for a floor or table).

Available online, expect to pay around £640.
