"A floor lamp“ is based on the simple mechanism of a beam balance. A long beam cranes across the room and balances a lampshade on one side against a sandbag on the other. The sandbag can be moved manually into four positions to create different lighting situations. Reduction and simplicity define the form as well as the function of this lamp. Its form and movement give it its unique character. The combination of the two-colored parts of the floor lamp, sandbag and lampshade can be chosen freely. "A floor lamp“ comes disassembled, but can be easily installed by one person.

"We were particularly impressed by the very intelligent, minimalistic design in combination with an exciting use of materials. Despite its static look, the design still creates a real sense of atmosphere and has poetic appeal."
