AYNO is the forward-thinking interpretation of the Midgard slogan “lighting the way for modernism”. With its high standards of technology, design innovation and material efficiency, this lighting family translates Midgard’s DNA into the present: its design is intellectual, well thought through and precise, yet also unobtrusive, timeless and compatible with a wide range of different settings. Made of authentic, durable materials, the lamps are simple to use and appeal to the play instinct.
The snake in the logo is intended to symbolise the flexibility of his technically groundbreaking and innovatively designed lamps. Their precise machine aesthetic and ingenuity strikes a chord with the avant garde of architecture and product design: when the Bauhaus moves into its new buildings in Dessau in 1926, Midgard lamps are among the furnishings.
