lumen

WINNER - CULT DESIGN JOURNEY 2016

As you would celebrate any other birthday, I chose to celebrate with a candle, of sorts. Lumen is a lighting concept for Cult’s 20th anniversary that re- appropriates the endearing qualities of the candle, the warmth, the dappling and the movement.

Lumen is a table lamp comprised of a metal base around which a trio of curved glass panels orbit, allowing the user to physically dim and play with the amount, direction and tone of light. The glass can be overlapped to dim the light and to create new tones, or removed from the path of the light, to focus the beam.

The ability to play with the light in this way creates a new space in which to interact with the lamp and facilitates an mesmerising experience for the user.
