Description

“The Muses” lamp series is created using gypsum, an entirely natural and sustainable raw material extracted in Latvia. For this piece, designer Ieva Kalēja has abandoned the geometrically precise shapes conventionally used in gypsum building elements and plays with coarser, more natural shapes and spontaneous, torn textures. The lamp captures the magic of a delicate dragonfly landing on a rough stone surface. The lamps can be customised by painting them in a desired colour.

Ieva Kalēja launched the brand mammalampa in 2009 as a family-owned company. The brand’s name, which combines “mum” and “lamp”, reveals the fact that a feminine perspective dominates in the design, and the lamps are handmade by women. mammalampa imagines materials in an unexpected light and creates its own distinctive style free of clichés.

The author of "mammalampa’s" collection of lamps and its signature designs is designer, Ieva Kalēja  She has obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Visual Art in The Art Academy of Latvia and a Master’s degree at the Domus Academy in Milan. Her work is characterised by the fusion of art and design. In her creative work, she has chosen to step outside the realm of virtual thinking; she finds real things and new ways of applying natural materials, thus forming her signature style. Design ideas are inspired by everything primeval, that comes form mother nature and that is not stamped with cliches of the values.  For instance, bent in a meadow or pile of wood She offers a new aesthetic, in which the natural harshness of materials is contrasted with their perfect refinement. This is characterised by the contemporary interpretation of "handmade", i.e. not replacing machines, but finding those items which machines cannot provide, nuances of refining materials through natural processes. Currently Ieva Kalēja works at the Art Academy of Latvia and Latvian Design Centre - the most significant institutions of design in Latvia.
