In the Moa lamp, the traditional rigid base and transparent top have changed places. Thus the light and tinted glass blend with the surface underneath, adding texture to the light. The lamp comes in two different shapes and six colours, forming different characters with the same DNA. Two of the lamp tops are stained, which lets the reds in the glass interact with the reds in the wood. Like my friend Moa smiles at you from under her bangs, the lamp lights up your day from under its hat.

Materials: Hand turned beech wood, tinted glass in hand-made mould, textile-covered electrical cord.
