Airam WIR Bulb Pendant Lamp Designed by Tapio Wirkkala
Airam’s K2-135 pendant combines Tapio Wirkkala’s famous WIR light bulb with an hourglass-shaped, coloured glass shade which lets the shape of the WIR bulb shine through beautifully. A black fixture, cord and canopy give a sharp contrast to the transparent glass.
Tapio Wirkkala designed WIR bulb for the Finnish Airam already in 1959. The simple and elegant bulb became popular soon after its launch, renewing lighting design by making a technical component an essential part of a lamp. In 1960, Tapio Wirkkala received the Grand Prix of Milan Triennale for his WIR bulb.SHOP NOW
