OBJ-01 Floor by Manu Bañó

OBJ-01 Floor is a minimal floor lamp created by Mexico City-based designer Manu Bañó. As an updated version of the OBJ-01 Table Lamp, the piece is an understandable simple gesture, an object that needs no explanation. At a glance, it reveals its material, its manufacturing process, its function and its use. A plate of raw metal, that can be steel, stainless steel, or brass is laser cut and assembled by hand with a rubber hammer and no welding joinery. Its size responds to the modulation and format of the material in its commercial standards. Pure geometric figures build the lighting fixture, a rectangle, a circle, and a cylinder at the back which contains the LED spot light. The circle, when cut out, adopts the function of a screen and can rotate 360 degrees to direct the light at will.
