Big Mama is a large floor lamp made of paper and wood: basic and eco-friendly Nordic materials, used for the shade and the body respectively.
Big Mama represents more than simple illumination of space. Big Mama does light up a room, but at the same time it gives the space character and personality. Its shape tells us intuitively more about its function. Simple and direct; with its iconic and super classical shape, there is no doubt that this is a lamp.
At the same time the strong, dominant and sculptural character of the object resembles that of an item which does not need to possess a mere function in order to justify its existence! Big Mama lights up a space with a strong and clear, yet warm and mood-creating light.
