Maija pendant lamp

By Santa & Cole


  • Description

    The warm, filtered light housed within the Maija series now with LED technology, in the new hanging lamp version based on the original 1955 design and re-edited in two sizes: Maija S and Maija L. 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. Maija was a very popular lamp from the start. It was the only one made by this first major Finnish industrial non-architect designer after Alvar Aalto, and who is now recognised as a maestro of generations. An opaque body with a brass structure fragmented into superimposed plates, filters and directs its happy inner light. The full series of the famous Finnish classic comprises floor, table top and hanging versions.
