The young Canadian designer and Design Academy Eindhoven graduate Lukas Peet has created this series of steel pendant lamps inspired by spotlights. Presented earlier last month during imm cologne’s [D³] Contest, the ‘Spotlight Volumes’ collection encompasses three glossy lampshades, each fitted with an energy efficient lightbulb at either end which simultaneously illuminate the ceiling and the floor of an interior. The design is suspended with a simple, braided electrical cord and a 1mm steel wire looped around the lamp.
More about the design:
‘The outer surface is coated in gloss paint, while the inner is hand painted with a brushed pale matte yellow to contrast the strong overall shape of the lights. The smooth gloss finish of the outside also contrasts with the texture of the visible strokes on the inside.
‘The yellow of the inner shade is added to the light through diffusion, adding warmth to the cfl Bulb. The two finishes are divided by the polished steel edge. The lights hang from their braided electrical cord and a 1mm steel cable due to the overall weight.’
