Tapio Wirkkala designed his Pendant Lamp TW003 in 1960. With simple, elegant and yet striking style, it was showered with awards at the Milan Triennale. A special feature of the lamp is that the light contributes directly to its unmistakable shape, and is not just a ‘means to an end’.
The distinctive Pendant Lamp TW003 was also well-received by the audience, quickly becoming an international success. Artek has now revised the TW003, releasing an energy-efficient LED version. The shape and appeal of the aesthetically pleasing pendant lamp remain unchanged despite the technological update.
Artek manufactures the shade for the Pendant Lamp TW003 from lacquered steel. The bulb which contributes to the characteristic shape of the lamp, which also fits other E27 sockets, is also available separately.
