Classic meets future. Check out this floating lamp. It was shown on Salone del mobile in Milan (April, 2012) and I fell helplessly for the inventive idea.
It was designed by Angela Jansen for Dutch company CreaLev. This is what it says about the lamp on CreaLev’s website:
“Angela Jansen has reinvented the standard lamp. The design evokes memories of old fashioned lamps, but when you see the floating part, you realize this is designed for the future. The lamp consists out of a handcrafted wooden base with a high glossy black finish. Attached is a stylish black fabric covered power cable. The conical shaped lampshade is manufactured in matt black fabric with a pearl white inner side furnishing. The light flows through the openings of the mirror which covers the lower part of the lampshade.”
