Airam - Return of Wirkkala luminaries

3.9.2017

Airam presents reproduction of Tapio Wirkkala design. Wir-85 lamp and three light fixtures from the original range have been selected for production. Designed by Tapio Wirkkala for Airam in 1959, the WIR light bulb was a novelty in lamp design. The elegant bulb with its opal glass, connected to a simplified bulb holder, was awarded the Grand Prix prize at the XII Milan Triennial exhibition in 1960. The lamp K2-131 instantly became an international success. Muurla is manufacturing glass cups. Read more from Airam.
