With North designer Arik Levy has come up with a new category of a lamp. One that fuses a floor lamp and a suspended light, recreating a floating effect. A long carbon fiber rod, its lightweight and flexible qualities making it the perfect support, hangs from the ceiling via an almost imperceptible steel cable.
A counter-weight at floor level guides the electrical cable from the conically shaped shade to the wall socket and makes it possible to place the light fitting in any desired position. With its essential design, North pierces the air extending its luminous coverage while defining a space without overwhelming.
“North is a system that exists in space. It’s like the light from the sun which over the year changes its height and position,” Arik Levy
Arik Levy has come up with a dynamic a system of adjustable angles to bring light where it’s required, in an exercise of functional and poetic deconstruction. The sharper angle circumscribes a close and intimate area, a more open angle creates a more social space. It’s the lightest floor lamp yet designed.
The name of the collection refers to the qualities of north light. A different and more diffuse light that’s projected forcefully while also avoiding sharp shadows. The careful treatment of the diffuser as well as the Led light source lend it a great warmth. The conical shade made from aluminum is available in graphite, blue, cream and white with a matt finish. It’s equipped with a dimmer switch provided within the electrical cable.
