X / table lamp


The playful yet elegant approach of this desk lamp heralds a new way of designing lamps. The conscious renunciation of cumbersome mechanisms leads to a unique design. By shifting the wooden element the height of the lamp and therefore the illumination can be regulated. Its characteristic X-shape is recognisable at any time, no matter how much the elements are moved against each other. Attention is also paid to the clasping elements of the design. They serve not only an aesthetical but also a functional purpose. The radii enable unrolling when adjusting the height.
