Impressive floor lamp by Finnish manufacturer HKA Helsingin Kaasuvalo, probably designed in the 1970s.

The surprising feature of this lamp is the adjustability of the height of the off-white sphere. This construction, combined with the pleasant light generated by the plastic sphere, makes this lamp an interesting lighting  object.

The lamp is made of a rather heavy metal base, a chromed metal rod and a sphere (diameter 38 cm / 15 inch). The latter consists of two half spheres, joined together by means of three decorative connecting pieces.

The manufacturer’s brand is located at the bottom of the base (see picture).
