Perhonen table lamp


Yrjö Kukkapuro’s decorative Perhonen (“Butterfly”) table lamp is displaying its wings in two new colors. The latest version of this classic, now in black and white, is the perfect complement to the Perhonen floor lamp, delightful in its feel and rich design. The screws that keep together the components of this playful lamp, designed in 1983, reveal this to be a genuine Kukkapuro product. Manufactured now for the first time by Innolux, this lamp was the creation of one of the most renowned Finnish interior designers.
