Close / floor lamp


The idea behind CLOSE takes center stage in every room. Closely intertwined with its environment, the lamp is constantly looking for a companion: a shoulder to lean on in a mutualistic relationship. The minimalist design necessitates that the lamp never stands isolated from other objects and, therefore, CLOSE flourishes within the company of others, providing her with a strong pillar of confidence.
Consisting of multiple pieces, the lamp allows for compact packaging and its plug-in system guarantees user-friendly and easy assembling.
