The Harri Koskinen Block Lamp is a contemporary collector's piece. Two translucent glass blocks are hand-cast at high heat for durability and unique texture. The shape of a lightbulb is completed when they are placed together, and an LED lightbulb screws perfectly into place. A textiled plug cord has a convenient switch. Part of the Museum of Modern Art New York collection since 2000, the block lamp has been a favorite since its inception in 1996. Designed by Harri Koskinen, the lamp continues to be among Design House Stockholm's most popular products and has numerous design awards and accolades to its credit. Give your home or office a Scandinavian luminosity with the iconic Harri Koskinen Block Lamp.

Launched in 1997, it has received numerous awards and became part of MoMA’s permanent collection in 2000. Since 2014, the Block Lamp is upgraded with a LED light bulb.

The idea for the Block Lamp was born during a workshop at the University of Art and Design Helsinki. The students were given an assignment to design a gift for a wedding. ”I had this simple form that I wanted to cast in glass, and got the idea to ’wrap’ something into the glass. I first tried a couple of snaps glasses, but then the same thing happened like always when I’m in the design process – at a subconscious level I started reducing.” Each part of the block lamp is hand cast and undergoes an extremely long cooling process to avoid cracking later on if exposed to strong temperature changes. The matte bulb shape is sand-blasted.

Design awards:
Excellent Swedish Design (1998)
The Design Plus (1999)
Ambiente Show (1999)
Frankfurt Fair (1999)
The Best New Product at the Accent Show in New York (1999)

Perfection in design
Great concept and excellently executed. It was purchased for an 18-year old college student and should be appreciated for years to come. To me it is a decor item more than room lighting. While it does throw off a decent amount of light, the light is more warm-toned like incandescent light rather than a pure white light. I wouldn't necessarily read by it. This lamp is a design statement above all else but what a design!

Better than expected
WOW
This light is really beautiful in real life - the pictures can't do it justice. The glass is hefty and finished in a subtly undulating shape. Light emits from a frosted lightbulb cavity. The artistry really shines through.
