Pallas, Sulo, Siiri, Kirassi and Palturi are all sheltering in hollow tree trunks, lighting up a dark forest in a night-time diorama that creates a dreamy atmosphere.
This is the Linnut installation (the Finnish word means “birds”), presented by Magis in its Corso Garibaldi showroom for Salone del Mobile.
The five sculpture lamps, two of which come in two different sizes, represent Magis’ first foray into the world of lighting. Made of rotationsl-moulded polycarbonate, they were designed by Oiva Toikka, based on Birds, the famous blown-glass collection created by his sensational imagination, and produced for Iittala from the 1970s.
