The idea was to create a lamp which is adjustable on the one hand and as lowtech as possible on the other. The inspiration for the movement was a common seesaw which can be found on children's playgrounds.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The shape of the base allows Pilu to switch between two different positions, like a seesaw. The lamp shade and the base are connected by a one-directional joint, which moves according to the angle of the base. The joint allows the light to be directed downwards even when the lamp is in the angled position.
Standing straight PILU can be used as a regular standing lamp whereby its light shines down the bar and serves as an indirect light source. In the angled position you can use it as a reading light, next to your sofa or on your desk.
