French designer Ferréol Babin’s ‘Roll’ lamp modulates its light output with rotational motion. Composed of two independent yet complementary elements, a tube with a light source and a base it rests on, by simply turning the tube a user can adjust its light.
“Thanks to the rotational motion, user can modulate and guide its light, going from an indirect and soft one, to a direct light perfect for reading or working.” says Babin.
“The absence of mechanism or complex technology in favor of a minimal and essential shape makes Roll an elegant and timeless object. The transformer, which is often an ugly part, is hidden into the hollow body.”
