Pendulum reading & ambient lamp

Project Client: Self—initiated project
YEAR: 2021/22

Pendulum is a reading and ambient table lamp. Counterweight keeps the lampshade in perfect balance in any position. This way the lampshade can be rotated as far as +90° to -90° and rotated around its vertical axis by 360°. LED light source stays hidden to the eye, no matter the position the lamp is in. The light is indirectly scattered via the lampshade which dramatically reduces the glare and makes it easy on the eyes. Extra attention was put into the ease of lamp assembly and disassembly. This may seem as a very mundane feature, but in fact many now—day products have their parts glued and assembled in a way that doesn’t allow effective repairing. He wanted to change that and make repairing effective once again. Repairing the pendulum is easy and affordable. Using simple tools and with all the spare parts available in their store. Longevity guaranteed!
