The TW002 Pendant Lamp, structured by Tapio Wirkkala for Artek, is a mouth blown, silk opal glass cone pendant that gives warm, surrounding light. Wirkkala is known for discovering motivation in nature and showing uncommon craftsmanship.
Tapio Wirkkala designed the Artek TW002 'Triennale' in the year 1951. The Milan Triennale was the first to introduce the Triennale to the world in 1951. Wirkkala went with a minimalistic design approach which is reminiscent in the conical glass form and helps it to blend in any environment. The initial section has a slight taper which precedes the bottom cone with higher taper. The hand-blown opalescent glass has a satin finish for easing light ambience. The Triennale is only available in one version, i.e. white satin opal glass.
Unlike some other plastic wire tailing designs, the TW002 Triennale’s light fixture plug has a 2-metre white textile cable at its end. Power needs are similar to some others as it needs a 220-240V 50Hz power supply with a 60-watt maximum power capacity. The fixture houses an E27 threaded bulb and is compatible with various energy class starting from A++ up to E. Added to this; the TW002 is also appliance class II certified, i.e. the design compensates for the need of any safety circuit. The IP20 rating, further adds to the safety perspective. The Triennale is an evergreen design to last for ages to come.
