Maija



NEW COLOUR

When the epic character that is Alvar Aalto dominated cultural life in Helsinki, in 1955 Ilmari Tapiovaara – the first Finnish non-architect designer who vindicated himself in said capacity – a superb expert in chairs and furniture, and then a master for many generations of other Finish non-architect designers, undertook the project of his only household lamp. His source of inspiration was Maya the Bee (German: Die Biene Maja), a friendly character from a 1912 children’s book, which gave rise to widely acclaimed comic strips and a Japanese television series, translated as Maija in Finland.

The Maija collection is an expression of the feeling of light that is common in the cities of the Baltic, where public street lamps are few and far between and instead private homes and shop windows shine their beams of light towards the public street: outwards. In light of the circumstances, Tapiovaara conceived a column of small metal superimposed discs from which the light hangs out from a shimmering honeycomb, shrouded in warm life. The discs were originally in a nude rose colour, subsequently white was produced and nowadays Santa & Cole offers both alternatives.

These surprising luminous objects – table, floor and pendant lamps – get out of all proportions when used several times in a row in the same setting.


The Maija series is part of the Design Classics collection, a series of objects created at different times of modernity with the aim of putting forward critical discussion on creation in industrial design beyond mere trends.

New colour

We are reediting the Maija series with one of the designer's original details: the structure in nude rose, a very Nordic colour.

Hämeenlinna, 1914 - 1999

Ilmari Tapiovaara is a pioneer in the new industrial design that arouse after World War II, when it was no more a cultural luxury asset but spread to the whole of society.

Ilmari Tapiovaara was born in 1914 in Hämeenlinna (Finland), and studied at the Central School of Arts and Crafts, where he got in contact with functionalism, with Alvar Aalto's designs, and with the Modern movement. He then completed his training at Le Corbusier's studio.
