Tapuo Wirkkala designed his TW003 pendant lamp in 1960. It was given many awards on the Milan triennial in its simple, elegant and still distinctive style. The lampshade directly influences the unmistakable shape of it, and this is special because it isn’t really for the purpose of filtering the light beams.
The unmistakable TW003 lamp was popular in only an instant, reaching international success. Artek re-edits the TW003 now, as an energy saving LED edition. The shape and appeal of the aesthetical pendant lamp remain unchanged despite of the technical advance.
Artek manufactures the shade of the TW003 pendant lamp out of lacquered steel. The illuminant which influences the characteristic form of the lamp, which also suits in other E27 sockets, is also available separately.
