Description
The Light Form is more than just an ordinary desk lamp, its a way to personalize the unique taste and feel of lighting for every different person. Simply punch your fist into the mesh LED wiring so the light can form around your hand to create a unique sense of light to only you. The side profile of the design is a minimalistic take of a arm, but when the product is put into perspective; the inspiration from Japanese designer Nendo and mid-century Harry Bertoia is ever so clear. When constructing the structure of the wire frame light, I took the idea of the geometric dome from Buckminster Fuller and constructed the whole steel wire frame into triangles so the frame is completely evenly weight balanced. This is a tribute to what a mid-century modern light should look like; sculptural and functional.
