Lisa Johansson-Pape Brass Floor Lamp for Stockmann Orno, Finland 1950s

$ 3,135
  • Description
    Finnish designer, Carin Lisa Johansson-Pape, was among the most significant Finnish lighting designers in the second half of the 1900s. She designed furniture for Stockmann from 1937 and from 1942, she designed for the Stockmann owned lighting factory, Orno. Her attention eventually turned towards lighting, and she co-founded the Illuminating Engineering Society of Finland.

    Sharing the visual language of the model “Ihanne”, this model also has a brass shaft with a twisted dark brown plastic band wrapped tightly around it and a round foot plate in brass. This floor lamp has an essentially Nordic modern look, with a combination of classic and interesting material choices and design. The main materials of the tube, base, and socket are brass and plastic. The winding on the tube is especially impressive, connecting the brass base and the socket. The fabric lampshade has a classic empire shape, and is supported by an acrylic reflector. The light fabric is ruched all over the lampshade. Ruching is a fabric manipulation technique used to give a fabric texture and dimension by repeatedly pleating and folding the material. The classic empire shade has a white lacquered metal wire structure supporting its shape gradually widening towards the bottom. The light linen fabric has an elegant and stylish look that stands out even more when the lamp is lit. Combined with the dark pipe and brass stem, the design offers a variety of points of visual interest.This rare model is most likely model “2061” from Orno’s Lighting Catalogue from 1951.

    This model is no longer in production unlike some of Johansson-Pape’s other designs.The manufacturer, Stockmann Orno A.B. was a major lighting factory, founded in 1921 in Helsinki, Finland. In 1936, Stockmann became the owner of Orno and the company moved to Kerava in 1937. Orno’s main lighting designers were Lisa Johansson-Pape and Yki Nummi. Since the factory closed its business in 2001, thismodel is no longer in production, making it a rare collectors’ piece.

    While Lisa Johansson-Pape was also active as a furniture designer, her lighting designs brought her world-wide fame. Her work was presented in New York’s World Fair of 1939 and the Milan Triennial IX, where she won an award in 1951.
