Lighting designs are no longer boring and typically designed objects that do nothing but add light to a living space. A well-designed lighting fixture should not only have the ability to illuminate any living space but also add that extra oomph factor! I mean, of course, we need them to see in the dark, but as highly functional as they should be, a lighting fixture also needs to be aesthetically pleasing, adding an attractive and visually soothing element to your home or office space. And, a lighting fixture that we feel would make an excellent addition to your living space is the Meter Lamp by Pholc.
Swedish design brand Pholc teamed up with Danish design duo Maria Bruun and Anne Dorthe Vester to create a pair of lamps that are inspired by Japanese rice paper lanterns. Named One Meter and Half Meter inspired by their taller and shorter heights, the lamps have a statuesque and architectural quality.
The lamps have a unique solid base which is crafted from aluminum, and it perfectly contrasts with the translucent ribbed paper shade above, which emits a soft warm light. “We wanted to create a new interpretation of the classic rice paper lamp,” said Bruun. “A design sharing its lightness and softness but with a solid sculptural base. We explored contrasting materials to create a unique presence and sculptural reference.”
“The designers were given a directive to produce a floor lamp with a height of around one meter that emits a gentle and uniform ambient light,” said Maja Norburg, Pholc’s creative director. “The lamp should also serve as a captivating sculptural piece that sparks curiosity.” One Meter is designed to be used as a floor lamp owing to its height, while Half Meter is ideal to be used as a table lamp. Both lamps are stylish and exquisite, designed to be used as magnificent lighting designs for your home, that add some spark and character to your living space.
