+The slim and flexible fiberglass rod bends thanks to the power cable fixed by the two movable adjustment rings, placing the cone light into the desired position
+ The dimmer lets you adjust the light intensity to your need and will help you with your circadian rhythm
+The easy assembly requires no tools and also extends the lifespan of the lamp as parts are easily replaceable.

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.
“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
Working with Konstantin Grcic for several years, Stefan graduated in 2002 and founded DIEZ OFFICE in Munich. From 2007 onwards Stefan was Professor of Industrial Design at the University of Arts and Design Karlsruhe, joining the School of Industrial Design Lund, Sweden, in 2015. Since 2018 Stefan Diez is Head of Industrial Design at Die Angewandte in Vienna.
The early 20th-century inventor and designer Curt Fischer spent time researching ways in which he might be able to improve the light quality in his town's factories during the 19-teens. Upon visiting and speaking with the workers, it was discovered that the downward-casting overhead lighting created shadows on their work surfaces. And so the first articulating lamp was designed and patented. Used on the wall or desktop, this adjustable lamp even allows for an optional asymmetrical rotatable shade to block direct light from the user's eye.
After nearly 100 years of surviving war and depression, Midgard was purchased and brought back to life in 2014 by long-time collector David Einsiedler and his partner Joke Rasch. Using the exact tooling and machines from the original factory and staying true to the designs and materials used decades before, Midgard is now on a path of innovative, sustainable light developments backed by its long-lasting craft expertise. The successful Ayno collection is a statement in that direction.
