LOOP | Marble table lamp
Direct light marble table lamp
The LOOP is now available as a standing desk lamp with a metal base on which a vertical panel in wood or marble is turning, holding a metal ring with the light source and capturing the electric cable in a fixed loop.
The ring and base of this LOOP desk lamp are custom made brass pieces. The pivoting vertical part of the LOOP desk lamp consists of a solid, oiled oak panel, or marble such as calacatta or fior di bosco, as a contemporary reinterpretation of an art-deco desk lamp.
The main concept in the design of the LOOP is based on the idea of capturing the electric cable of the light in a flat surface. The cable, with many lamps often just a necessary evil distracting the attention away from the light design, becomes an essential part of the design of the LOOP. Instead of just laying about, the electric cable covered with fitting fabric is now captured into an elegant curve making a loop over the whole length of the vertical surface, hence its name.
The ring is placed asymmetrically on the side of the board, breaking in this way the vertical line of the design, a typical recurring concept in the architectural formology of the designer.
By letting the vertical part turn on the base, the cable however fixed in a predetermined loop, still keeps its flexibility, breaking the rigidity of the hard surface and giving it a playful touch.
