Balance lamp (A-Type) by BLOTT WORKS
Sculptural desk lamps that play with gravity and a bit of simple rocking chair science.
This family of sculptural lamps are designed to allow you to roll them forward or backward as a way of extending or retracting the light horizontally. Repositioning the big brass weight on the rocker re-balances the lamp to a new equilibrium. Fine angle adjustments are made by sliding the upper brass counterweight along the horizontal bar.
This A-Type Balance lamp is based on a golden ratio spiral giving it a flavour of natural forms or swirling galaxies.
It is hoped that these simple things will make routine lamp adjustment a satisfying and playful experience. And put something truly sculptural on your desk!
Balance lamps are hand-engineered in the North of England out of anodised aluminium, brass, stainless steel and hardwoods. They are approximately 42 cm tall and use a standard 12V DC LED bulb and plug-type power supply.
