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.
