Upgrading Simplicity: Creative Ugol Corner Lamp by Yaroslav Misonzhnikov

If your working table is between 1 and 2,5 cm thick, then setting up this unusual lighting piece will not be a problem. Saint Petersburg designer Yaroslav Misonzhnikov envisioned a lamp that is far from our common vision of a lighting object. Entitled Ugol, the project (discovered by Freshome on Architizer) features a minimalist appearance and is fit for table corners. “The main idea was to create a lamp without different settings. I don”t like to fix lamps”, explains Misonzhnikov.

If you were expecting a vast set of instructions from the designer, again this is not the case: “Simply slide the Ugol to the table’s vertex and it will incline by its own weight. That’s it! For my lamp you don’t need anything. But it’s a little more complex than meets the eye. I like its limitations, You can’t use round tables, very thick tables and so on; this is part of concept also”. Simple and discreet enough for a working desk, Ugol is our idea of a clever and original lamp design.

    Love the idea. It is really stylish and very suitable for modern houses. This is great so you don’t have to see any wiring or bulbs. It keeps everything appear organized and clean.
