Description from Magnus Pettersen

Leimu is a table lamp which has a glass lampshade which sits on a concrete base. The glass is tinted in a copper colour to produce a warm, atmospheric light and the concrete is made slightly darker to make it seem softer. The design is inspired by architecture, and wanting to bring a crude and cold material like concrete into an interior setting. The fragile glass and tough concrete is an unnatural pair, but it’s the contrast of the two materials which makes the design work.
