Fade, Bals Tokyo, 2006
A floor- and table lamp family made of clear glass- or with a cotton shade. The stem and foot are made of powder coated steel.
The design was developed for Japanese brand Bals Tokyo and the inspiration quite surprisingly came from old table lamps with their sometimes baroque oversized feet, preferably in gold. They serve as reflectors for the light and that led me in to studying the surface of the lamp the light hits. Instead of using shape I went for color to describe light and after a while the experimenting made me imitate light and shadow by painting it on the surface.
