The Silhouette Floating Lamp
Design Academy Eindhoven graduate Angela Jansen has come up with a seriously eye-catching variation on the classic table lamp – the Silhouette Floating Lamp. While the upper part levitates using electromagnets, the lower section is home to a ring of LEDs that reflect off the suspended mirror above to throw light out into the room.
The Silhouette’s lower section sits on top of a handcrafted wooden base in black, from which runs a 2 meter (6.5 foot) black fabric covered power cable. It offers finger-touch dimming, has a light intensity of 300 lux and uses 15 W when at full strength.
The mirrored bottom of the upper lampshade also lets some through openings to illuminate the area above and below.
The Silhouette Floating Lamp is available direct from Light Light for a not insubstantial EUR980 (US$1,350), and comes supplied with universal power adapter sporting an EU plug as standard, but U.S. versions can be ordered.
