Portraying a graphic interpretation of honeycomb, the white Maija 15 Pendant Light was first designed by Ilmari Tapiovaara in 1955 and is crafted today by Santa & Cole.
The light features an opaque metal shade, transparent glass diffuser and brass hardware. Whilst its dynamic design remains as relevant today as in its prime, the Maija has been updated with LED technology to bring its inner workings up-to-date.
Finnish designer Ilmari Tapiovaara was born in Hämeenlinna, Finland in 1914, and went on to train with Le Corbusier and work using modern and functionalist sensibilities. Seen as a pioneer in the rise of post-war industrial design, Tapiovaara’s Maija collection was an instant hit, remaining a Finnish classic to this day.
