Inspired by a plant (of the same name) who’s flowers are said to turn with the sun, the Turnsole lamp brings a bit of warmth and industrial style to any space. According to designer Mindaugas Petrikas, the lamp shade opening should always be pointed at a wall so that, like the flower, it looks to the bright spot, always facing the light! With its spindly legs and light color scheme, it’s eye-catching without being visually cluttering.
Its legs are connected by three ropes. This creates tension in only one axis, allowing the legs to move sideways with ease, but preventing them from moving back and forth. The ropes are attached to a steel turnbuckle which adjusts the tension and the footprint of the tripod. While they’re not telescopic, this adjustable system allows the user to adapt the lamp to spaces with varying width and height requirements.
