Airam is launching a range of K2 luminaires designed by Tapio Wirkkala in a fresh new combination of colours. With the K2 luminaire, light is an aesthetic experience: the beautiful shape of the bulb can be clearly seen inside the clear glass lampshade.
The crystal bulb designed by Tapio Wirkkala in 1968 was inspired by the vivacity of the nature in Lapland, the melting ice and flowing water. The design classic is once again available, now produced as an LED version.
Enjoy the steam in the glow of Airam’s SaunaLed lighting. The ‘Design from Finland’-accredited SaunaLed light is soft and dimmable. The shade can be tinted to suit any sauna.
In the 1950s, Tapio Wirkkala examined the bulb and the light fixture as a single unit. The WIR bulb, which received an award at the 1960 Milan Triennial, was created as the result of collaboration between Airam and Wirkkala. Wirkkala later designed a range of glass dome light fixtures to emphasize the shape of the WIR bulb.
