Sawaru Modern Floor Lamp by Nendo – A Sight to Behold
17th Oct 2019
Internationally-acclaimed japanese designer Oki Sato presents his latest creation for FLOS – Sawaru by Nendo. A modern floor lamp that consists of two aluminum cylinders, this imaginative design was first presented at Salone del Mobile in Milan Italy in 2017.
Designed to explore the concept of balance between two independent cylinders resting together at a 90-degree angle, Sawaru offers a delightful play of light. While the lamp structure uses basic geometric shapes, the way its body is crafted makes for a striking picture. One cylinder plays the role of a brilliant light source shining up from the floor, while the other acts as the base of the fixture.
The designer floor lamp’s projection angle can be adjusted at 25, 40 or 60 degrees by inserting the pin attached to its base. This directional and dimmable LED lighting fixture comes with color temperature control, adding to its dynamism and adaptability. The lamp is equipped with an advanced dimmer pedal on the power cord to control the light intensity and color temperature.
Sawaru floor lamp can be used to complement the other lamps in a room in order to create a stunning layered lighting effect. This LED floor lamp is also great when used as an accent lighting fixture which helps draw attention to a specific aspect of a room – a piece of art, for instance. You can even illuminate a hallway or a dark corner of a room and create an artistic effect in any indoor setting.
Its base and body are available in extruded aluminum with painted or galvanized finish. Here is a quick look at some of its other features:
- Diffuser in photo-etched injection-moulded polycarbonate
- Reflector in painted die-cast aluminum
- Corded power supply with interchangeable plugs
- Dimmer function and channel mixing via a pedal switch on the power cord
- Colours: Black, white, blue gray or bright gold
In addition to all these amazing features, the two primary components of this modern floor lamp can be separated and the body of the fixture can be installed directly on the floor (without the base cylinder).
