INSPIRATION:
A lighting design project is more than just about designing a source of illumination: the shapes and materials chosen highly influence the perception and ambiance we have of a space. Inspired and made by basic geometric shapes and everlasting materials, the limited edition lamp provides different lighting positions that can be achieved through a simple mechanical interaction with the elements constructing it. Its design provides different lighting positions to suit one’s mood.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Focal Point Lamp is a source of illumination that serves many purposes. This lighting fixture combines a white-milky porcelain cube swiveling around a solid copper rod with a touch of mint green color in the cloth-covered cord. The LED bulb light source, housed in the porcelain cube, is able to pivot around the bent copper rod which also acts as the stand for the lamp. The lamp made in Montreal, radiates the essence of lighting with a twist!
