Inverted Illumination

Unlike most desk lamp designs with shades that open in the direction of the light, the Flower Barb features a combination of sleek plates that extend backward from the apex. At the center point is a focused LED that’s perfect for working under. The result is a sort of floral aesthetic with a surprising, directional light; however, I’d love to see the 4 plates able to be adjusted in the opposite direction so the user can switch between ambient glow and focused light.
