“A design break of almost 70 years at Midgard was a clear challenge. And we were very happy to accept it, considering it a call to finding a radical solution." - Stefan Diez

Winner of the german sustainability award in design 2021, the AYNO Collection features minimalistic construction enabling extremely low resource consumption during production. The first design of Midgard since the 1950s, AYNO is testing the boundaries between the origin and status quo of adjustable lighting. Stefan Diez creates a modern interpretation with sustainable "circular design" at the center of his design philosophy. This lamp can be repaired tool-free by the user, plug connections allow the lamp head or transformer to be replaced by hand, which significantly extends the lifespan of the lamp.

Curt Fischer founded Midgard in 1919 introducing Germany to an innovative line of lighting. An engineer frustrated by inadequate lighting in his workplace, Fischer invented and built the first movable articulated lamps which were soon adapted to numerous applications at the Bauhaus under Walter Gropius. Current owners, husband and wife team David Einsiedler and Joke Rasch lovingly restored the original tooling, moving it piece by piece to Hamburg to revitalize this 100 year old company.
