Designer Koskinen plays with contrasts and the archetypes of modern society by placing a smaller bulb within a block of glass with a larger bulb shape, producing a happy conflict of visual suggestion and actual design. From the moment of its inception in 1996, Harri Koskinen's Design House Stockholm Block Lamp has become a design classic--a sensation of ice and light, heat and chill. Definitely one for the collection.

Under his management, Design House Stockholm has become a leading name at the forefront of Scandinavian design, and is known for its innovative products and established quality.
