Description / details

Antenna is a delicate statement - a fragile and minimalist expression of the desk lamp, a poetic simplification of task lighting. The surprise is in the way that Antenna telescopes apart, pulling up to light the table, pushing down to highlight the keyboard or page, rotating and turning to accent a picture on the wall. Some would argue that the once ubiquitous telescopic aerial is an endangered species, an instrument made obsolete by technological progress, but Antenna's knowing reference to an analogue heritage of pre-digital cars, FM radios and portable TVs is married to silent-butler state-of-the-art technology to make a truly fresh and modern statement. The simplicity and fragility of 'Antenna' belies the lamps technical sophistication.
