The buttons on a stereo amplifier from the 1980s was the source of inspiration for GamFratesi’s ‘Volume LED Blackbird’ lamp for Danish lighting brand Lightyears.
“Allow yourself to be fascinated by a seemingly forgotten, but significant gesture, where one via a mechanical rotation of a button gains an intuitive understanding of the function – to increase or decrease the volume.” says Lightyears.
“With Volume, you will rediscover this direct, responsive feeling. The lampshade is about the size of a palm and thus invites one to move it around and use the lamp in an informal way. One increases or decreases the intensity of the light quite easily – by a simple rotation of the hand on the shade.”
Suitable for a side table, bookshelves, bedside table, or desk, this small LED table lamp is made of die-cast aluminium and acrylic. Equipped with three Osram 1W LEDs, the lamp emits a pleasant light 360 degrees around and out through the opening at the top of the lamp.
