RATIA is celebrating its founder's Ristomatti Ratia's 80th birthday by launching a table lamp. Design office RATIA is known for its timeless and high-quality brand products. The cooperation that began in the 1990's with Finnish producers has given rise to numerous classics: bags, decorative fabrics, bath products, clothing, carpets, jewellery and other utensils for Finnish homes and wardrobes. RATIA's founder's, Ristomatti Ratia's, lifework as a pioneer of Finnish design inspires the creation of something new. His desire to create beautiful objects that make everyday life easier is also the starting point for the 80-lamp.
The table lamp has been designed by Laura Väre, RATIA's designer and young designer of 2019, and with it, RATIA celebrates Ristomatti Ratia's 80'th birthday, on 23 of May.
”This simply elegant table lamp was created in honor of Ristomatti Ratia's 80th birthday, and the number 80 has also served as an inspiration for the lamp's design. The material of the lamp is birch veneer, as wood brings a warm and atmospheric glow to the light. The lamp is like a glowing moon in the room, in the glow of which it is nice to curl up under the blankets as the nights get darker ”, Väre says.
RATIA's new, simply elegant 80-lamp is Finnish handicraft.
