Maija 30 Floor
About Maija 30 Floor
Tapiovaara said that it is impossible to create a new object without a point of referenceand nature is the best and closest manual for the industrial designer; whether in terms of the objects purpose, that is, its functional requirements, or in terms of shape, colour, material and adequate proportion. In 1955, when Alvar Aalto was the dominant figure of Helsinkis cultural life, Ilmari Tapiovaara presented himself as the first Finnish non-architect designer. An expert in chairs and furniture, he created his sole and unique household lamp: Maija. Table, pendant or floor lights, a striking luminous object, perfect as a standalone piece or grouped. The Maija family is part of our Design Classics collection, a series of objects created at different times during the Modernist era.
