“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.
