I love a beautifully-designed lighting design because I truly believe a really great one has the ability to illuminate a space – both literally, and metaphorically. Besides the physical light that it quite obviously emits, a well-designed lighting design can add manifolds of personality and charisma to a room or space. They can function as sculptural pieces, that are an extension of your personal taste and preference, truly exhibiting the richness and niche-ness of your curation capabilities, or if they’re the portable kind you can carry them along with you to illuminate anything anytime anywhere. And one such innovative and well-designed lighting product I recently laid eyes upon is the Nod Lamp by Tiptoe.
Designed by French furniture brand Tiptoe, the Nod Lamp is a cheerful and playful lamp with a tiltable head and a dimmable light. The Nod Lamp is Tiptoe’s first lamp, and it is named after its articulate head. The head has an interesting rounded shape, that can rotate up to 35 degrees on each side to direct and guide light in various directions. The lamp also features a dimmable light that makes it pretty useful for both moments of concentration and relaxation.
Tiptoe describes the Nod Lamp as a “sustainable and thoughtful design”. It is built from recyclable aluminum, and steel and features a low-power LED light source. The lamp is built in Portugal and is available in the form of a table lamp or a clamped lamp, which is inspired by the design of Tiptoe’s modular table legs – one of the brand’s signature products. The Nod Lamp is available in the brand’s key signature colors of Graphite Black, Cloud White, Ash Pink, Rosemary Green, and Eucalyptus Gray, and two new colors called Majorelle Blue and Naples Yellow.
The compact minimalist lamp would make an excellent addition to your work desk, illuminating it and functioning effortlessly, while adding a burst of character and whimsical playfulness to it as well. You can pick the color choice that perfectly complements your home office and work desk, adding an element of primary color that elevates your otherwise mundane worktable.
