The Modern Art table lamp is a classic finish design, one of the most famous Yki Nummi's creations. The base is made of transparent acrylic, the shade of opal acrylic.
Yki Nummi (1925-1984) was a major figure in Scandinavian design from the 1950s to the 70's. This talented artist, gifted in many areas, studied physics and mathematics before studying decorative painting at the Institute of Applied Arts in Helsinki. This double degree has made him particularly sensitive to the relationship between matter and light.
His best known creations are the Modern Art table lamp (1955) and the Lokki pendant (1960). Since 1958, the Modern Art table lamp is featured in the permanent collections of the MoMA in New York.
