Hollow Light is a minimal lamp created by Berlin-based industrial designer Hayo Gebauer. Hollow Light is medium-sized table lamp casting a soft atmospheric light. Its generous proportions combined with a simplistic geometry provide it with a chummy character. Viewed from an angle the perceived heft of the body reveals that the illuminated glass cylinder is in fact hollow and no light source is present inside of it. The base of the lamp houses all electronic hardware and encompasses the glass cylinder. Additionally it houses a recessed light source. The light emitted, passes through the cylinder and is refracted on its satin-finished inner-surface resulting in a pleasant glow. Hollow Light aims at high-lighting the omnipresent phenomenon that is light. It uses light to enhance form and create wonder by showing its saturating qualities when combined with a translucent form.
