Traditional fyrrys have been used in the interior design. The museum has also borrowed its name from the whirlpool, originally used as a children's toy! Photo © Pa-La.

We designed a lamp for Tinsmith Museum. A model for the design was fyrry, a whirlpool. Originally fyrrys were toys for children. By blowing into a pipe the whirlpool started to rotate. The lamp is made using the same traditional craft methods as it’s model.

The novelty lamp will be on display at Habitare Fair this November.
