Inspiration for this lighting series comes from the aged and undisturbed Finnish forest and the tiny Hiippa (Mycena) mushrooms you can find there.
The lampshade is thin and airy and made by turning wood from the willow tree. You can switch the light off and on by pulling the ”mushroom leg,” which is made from an organic root or branch.
