Pieces of Nordic Happiness

Iittala | Table lamps

Functionality and enduring design are in the core of the design philosophy of the Finnish glassware company Iiittala. Founded in 1881, Iittala started as a glass manufacturer, and today, glass and art glass are still an essential part of its heritage. Perhaps the most famous singular object of Finnish design, the Aalto vase, was designed for Iittala in 1936 by Alvar Aalto.

Iittala products are designed to be combined in countless ways, making our everyday life a bit lovelier with versatile tableware and décor objects. Classics designed by pioneers of Finnish design such as Kaj Franck, Alvar and Aino Aalto, Oiva Toikka, Tapio Wirkkala and Timo Sarpaneva, can very well be combined with the works of new and talented designers like Harri Koskinen ja Klaus Haapaniemi. Alongside with Iittala, the brands Arabia and Hackman are also part of the same company fighting against throwaway culture.

This brand has collaborated with: Heikki Orvola, Tove Slotte, Kaj Franck, Alfredo Häberli, Klaus Haapaniemi, Aino Aalto, Tapio Wirkkala, Björn Dahlström, Timo Sarpaneva, Renzo Piano, Alvar Aalto, Harri Koskinen, Oiva Toikka, Ilkka Suppanen, Matti Klenell, Klaus Aalto, Laura Partanen, Arto Kankkunen, Antonio Citterio, Glen Oliver Löw, Toan Nguyen, Jasper Morrison, Magnus Pettersen, Elina Aalto, Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, Kyuhyung Cho, Issey Miyake Design Studio, Iittala Design Team, Philippe Malouin, Akira Minagawa, Santtu Mustonen

Table lamps from the best in Scandinavian design

Table lamps bring a beautiful combination of practicality and aesthetics to an interior. As well as lighting its surroundings, a table lamp can often be an eye-catching, sculptural element of interior decor, even when switched off. Table lamps are particularly needed on bedside tables and desks, and they cast a pleasant, warm light when placed on a shelf or as window lights. A table lamp can also be a bright reading light or spotlight which can be directed downwards at a tabletop or towards a wall. Cordless or portable table lamps can be used outside – our range of outdoor lamps includes many table lamps suitable for exterior use.

The light cast by a table lamp is affected by its structure and materials. White opal glass shades or atmospheric Asian paper shades create dimmer mood lighting and window lighting. Good reading lamps, study lamps and desk lamps, on the other hand, have an adjustable arm and shade for directing light where you prefer. Modern table lamps can also have a range of technical features such as a touch dimmer switch, timer or rechargeable battery. In bedside table lamps, a dimmer is very handy for adjusting between bright reading light and soft mood lighting. Design lamps are made from materials designed to stand the test of time. Our collection includes table lamps made from a selection of luxurious materials such as marble, brass, mouth-blown glass and wood.
