Conic is a playful exploration of geometry and asymmetry, shadows and light, with a circle, a bar and a triangle. My ambition was to achieve character with a minimum of means; creating a small individual with its chin held high and a precise and distinct distribution of light and shadows – a light that forms an extension of the conical shape of the lamp. Conic is a playful take on essentials and basics.
Conic features a three-step dimmer built into the top of lampshade and a simple cord rollup in the bottom.
First prototype was made in 2011 for the Mindcraft Exhibition in Milan.
