Showcased at Salone Satellite 2013, the latest lighting collection from Finnish designer Maija Puoskari is both easy on the eyes and perfect for contemporary homes. Think of ‘acorn’ and to some of us the first thing that comes to our mind is the ‘Ice Age’ franchise. But the Terho ceiling lamp series could very well change that. The beautiful and uncomplicated design of these stylish pendant lights ensures that they fit in perfectly with the existing theme of your ultra-modern residence.
Designs that are inspired by nature are becoming more and more popular by the day. Part of it could be because of consumers who are far more Eco-conscious than ever before. It also seems apt that architects and designers are borrowing from the form that has been perfected by evolution over millions of years! With Terho taking the shape of delightful acorns, the Tatti table lamps seem to be inspired by the outline of a mushroom.
The opal white glass-blown casings of the lamps give them their chic and trendy appearance, while the Finnish alder ‘hats’ on top bring in a ‘natural’ appeal. With hanging light installations that are pleasant and ergonomic being popular additions in most homes (especially the kitchen), Terho sure seems like an ideal fit. Available in a couple of hip variants, both the hanging and table lamp complement each other beautifully as well. Design that is all about understated class! [spotted on: designboom]
