Product description

Tipi is a floorlight for both outdoor and indoor use, made from slats of heat-treated ash. The arrangement of the wooden slats around a stainless steel circular structure is reminiscent of the Native American teepee as well as the Swedish Samis' "kåta". Hence the name. Tipi comes in two versions: a heat-treated natural wood, which goes greyer with time and a white lacquer that lets the grain show through. There is a choice of three sizes: 530, 740 and 950 mm high. The round handle on top, in die-cast aluminium, makes it easy to move around. The electric cord is concealed in one of the three legs, which raises the Tipi off the ground. “There is something about its height and glow that reminds me of a camp fire”, says Cyrén. “A portable camp fire”.


Originally Cyrén and Cyrén designed the light for the custom-made division of ateljé Lyktan, simply called Ateljén, or “the Studio”. It was especially commissioned for the Treehotel in Norrbotten, in northern Sweden – a new type of hotel made up of tree houses with all modcons. The inspiration for the lamp originates there, among the sticks and twigs and soothing sounds of the Swedish woods.


Recommended light source is a LED-bulb with E27 fitting.
