Solar is a contemporary floor/table lamp that doubles as a traditional light source and a unique furniture object. With an overall hemispherical shape made of polyethylene, Solar features a metal-finished flat surface on its head and a bright shaded light at its base made of polyethylene. The lamp also has a functional tilt feature that allows for it to be used in different positions.
While it maintains a minimal design, Solar can be the focal point of any space because of its unique light and inspiration from the solar system. It is available in indoor and outdoor versions in three different colors (white, black wood and textured brown).
