Maija 15 Pendant
SANTA & COLE
Tapiovaara said that “it is impossible to create a new object without a point of reference, and nature is the best and closest manual for the industrial designer. Whether in terms of the object’s purpose, that is, its functional requirements; or in terms of shape, colour, material and adequate proportion”. In 1955, when Alvar Aalto was the dominant figure of Helsinki’s cultural life, Ilmari Tapiovaara presented himself as the first Finnish non-architect designer. An expert in chairs and furniture, he created his sole and unique household lamp: Maija.
The Maija collection conveys the feeling of light in Baltic cities, where the streets are barely illuminated, apart from the light beaming through the windows of homes and shops: from the inside, outwards. Inspired by this, Tapiovaara created a honeycomb structure composed of stacked metal discs(a tower composed of stacked metal discs) that filters out its happy inner light, vibrant and inviting conversation.
A striking luminous object, table, floor or pendants lamps. The pendant version has been reedited in two sizes, with 15 cm or 30 cm diameter discs. Both models feature an interior white glass diffuser that filters the light; they can be used as single units or in a sequence. The Maija family is part of our Design Classics collection, a series of objects created at different times during the Modernist era.

Tapiovaara was a designer, interior architect and professor, who promoted the new design that emerged after World War II. Best known for his furniture and interior designs, his work explored multiplicity: he created many versions of each important piece. His practices at Le Corbusier studio, and his close relationship with nature made him an explorer new design, when it transformed from being a cultural luxury to becoming accessible to everyone.
