N LAMP | Table lamp
LED Corian® table lamp
Corian®, Chrome plated
Nowadays, as we are constantly surrounded by a huge information volume, the task of clearing you mind and space seems even more burdensome. A way to tackle this issue is to surround yourself with objects that though their esthetic and function make your life easier. N Lamp uses this principle and strives to encompass the essentials a desk lamp should have. Its design was inspired by the traditional water pumps one can find in the rural areas of Romania.
The N lamp is comprised of a metallic horizontal tube attached perpendicularly on a vertical one. At the shorter end of the horizontal structure, a marble counterweight is placed to hold the balance. The connection between the two structures is made via a chromed metallic ball which allows an almost 360 degrees rotary move of the lamp’s arm.
The marble base holds the entire weight of the structure and has an integrated light switch. The light switch is the intriguing and central element of the lamp. By moving the metallic sphere from one indentation to the other, the light is turn on or off. The user experience is therefore transformed, by allowing the person manipulating the sphere to participate in “the creation of light”. The invisible switch works by placing in the marble base an inductive sensor which functions in the same way as electric stoves do.
The name of the lamp was inspired by Newton’s cradle. The action created by moving the metallic sphere is replicated in the switch model, thus by creating action, you get reaction. (The form of the reaction, in this particular case, is the creation of light. )
The N lamp offers a warm, glare-free light, by using LED technology.
