The Tinga Floor Lamp is inspired by the crafts and techniques of Indian culture; most of Toronto-based industrial designer Tahir Mahmood's creations are inspired by Indian culture such as his Chaand Lamp.

In this case, the Tinga Floor Lamp's cylindrical body is meticulously hand-sculpted, molded and then glazed in different colors. Completely customizable, customers can choose from 11 different colors of glazed resin rings, allowing each Tinga Floor Lamp to be unique to every individual.

Perfect for any home, the Tinga Floor Lamp is sophisticated yet playful. They are also incredibly modern despite being influenced by age-old cultural art forms. The Tinga Floor Lamp really shows how much the distant past can influence the future.
