Minimalist Desk Light Inpired by a Black Stork’s Beak: “Ciconia”
We recently received an interesting lighting project from Topdeq in collaboration with Saxon light manufacturer idee.design.licht. Here are the photos together with the project description: “Designer Rainer Bachschmid created a novel design concept that was inspired by a stork’s beak. Hence the name “Ciconia” , the Latin name of the black stork. The lamp’s base and LED head form two symmetrical segments that can fold in and out like a beak or a pen-knife. One half contains a shining strip of thirty integrated LEDs, the other half bears a reflecting strip made of stainless steel. Unfolded, Ciconia floodlights the desk top – folded in, Ciconia is a stunning, minimalist light sculpture that graces private living spaces just as elegant office environments. Ciconia’s body is made of aluminum, powder-coated in black. The complete production process, from metal working to painting, assembly and packaging is integrated under one roof at idee.design.licht.” Freshome readers, would you go for a minimalist table lamp as opposed to an eclectic one?
