Mónica Pinto de Almeida U Table Lamp
U Table Lamp is Silver Design Award winner in 2022 - 2023 Lighting Products and Fixtures Design Award Category.
U Table Lamp

The U table lamp blends art and design with its clean aesthetic in the shape of an inverse u made of frost and opalescent acrylic. It draws inspiration from the passions of the designer, her academic background and from artists who mastered color and light. Emphasizing its expressive element, color, it compels people to see colors in new ways combining emotions with forms and blending art and design. The lamp works with an e27 chrome lamp socket covered by the opalescent acrylic that works as a diffuser and creates a graphic effect.
