It offers diffused light in the most magical of ways: Created by Paul Cocksedge, the skillfully designed and strikingly surreal SHADE floor lamp plays on the imagination to create a warm, ambient light that originates from the ground up.
Here, an LED floor fitting shines upwards into a paper shade suspended from the ceiling with next-to-invisible, whisper-thin wires. The diffuser is foldable paper, and the floor light source is black aluminum. A footswitch button with dimmer is included.
Inspiration Behind the Design:
With SHADE, designer Paul Cocksedge offers a functional and well-grounded design that is rooted in a sense of wonder. "SHADE has an almost dream-like mystery,” he says. “It utilizes both the floor and ceiling both, but appears unconnected to either."
