Finnish manufacturer Innolux restarted the production of the iconic Senator lamps, designed by Lisa Johansson-Pape in 1947, in honour of the centenary of Finland’s independence.
The shades in shimmering green, white and graphite grey have lustrous brass parts and are made to Johansson-Pape’s original specifications using Innolux’s demanding standards for quality and light. According to Johansson-Pape, “A lamp is not the actual purpose, but more like an instrument. It must fulfil its purpose as a provider of light, but at the same time it must also satisfy the aesthetic demands. A good light fixture must be simple and its structure and function must be both neat and correct.” Senator Pendant is an elegant addition to any space.
Lisa Johansson-Pape graduated as a furniture designer in 1927. Her career as a designer was long and wide-ranged. Johansson-Pape’s furniture was very functional. Their design was based on the durability of the infrastructure.
At Innolux it is important to design and manufacture high-quality design luminaires and bright light devices domestically, in Finland. The designers of Innolux lamps are among Finland’s most famous and respected.
