A tastefully and functionally designed lighting design is something I simply cannot resist! I love them since they have 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. An excellent lighting design that would make a great addition to your work desk is STELLA.
Designer: COG Design Studio
STELLA is a part of the 2023 New Collection Lighting products designed by COG Design Studio in collaboration with the lighting brand Bonakia. The collection focuses on creating basic forms of lighting via repetition, transformation, and a combination of geometric shapes. They provide a defined beauty to flat shapes by implementing three-dimensional changes in direction and bending. They attempt to integrate an emotional aesthetic to the simple form, by playing around with geometric figures.
STELLA is truly quite pretty to look at! It features an interesting triangular intaglio shape and is built using acrylic material. The goal behind the design was to observe the sensibility of light when it is transmitted to a detailed intaglio pattern. The lighting design features waves on its surface, the light strikes against the waves, forming a star, and then quickly dissipates. The lighting effect is quite ambient and seductive. It powerfully illuminates everything around it, without being too loud or bold. It somehow artfully manages to be effective and not overpowering.
The STELLA desk lamp is an ideal mix of functionality, utility, and aesthetics. It merges all three to serve as an efficient lighting design that is also super easy to carry around owing to its compact form. The lamp does look a little fragile, so you may have to be careful while carrying it around, as it could easily slip and break. Sufficient care should also be taken while cleaning and maintaining the lamp.
