Delicate table lamp in white lacquered metal shade and brass base by Tapio Wirkkala. The base and shade are adjustable in various positions. The shape seems harmonious at first glance, yet is distressed through unusual details. Manufactured by Idman. Finnish designer and sculptor Wirkkala was a leading figure of post-war European design. His contributions include glasses for Venini and a fruitful cooperation with Rosenthal. His work is unique, but can in importance be compared to that of Finn Juhl.
