The OMA floorlamp (oma is Finnish for ”own”) consists of a wrought-iron tripod base and a glass cover that has been mouth blown into a mold. The lamp prototype was produced by handicraft techniques and its structure is simple, yet clever. It may also be manufactured in industrial serial production. This slender utility article combines hard and sturdy iron with delicate and gently formed glass. The exquisite design and execution of the OMA floorlamp reflect the unyielding collaboration between the designer and various talented artisans, glass blowers and polishers as well as iron forgers. “Own home, own armchair, own book, own moment. “ The OMA lamp has been designed for young adults, families, grandmothers and career women. The lamp is lit to create a moment and atmosphere just for oneself, to create a pause in the middle of a busy day. Use OMA to light a moment of your own, in your favorite arm chair, with your favorite book. The form of the lamp may even distantly remind the viewer of a giraffe or a gazelle. The materials themselves have inspired the designer to create this composition of forms. Materials: Mouth blown glass, wrought iron Light source: E27 Height: 1300 mm (51.2 inches) Width: 500 mm (19.7 inches) Length: 900 mm (35.4 inches)
