Sawaru by Nendo is a light consisting of two independent cylinders touching each other in a perpendicular direction. One plays the role of a light source, while the other acts as a base. Its projection angle can be adjusted in three stages of 25, 40 or 60 degrees, by inserting the pin attached to the base. Various functions are made possible by doing away with excess elements and creating a simple form.
The floor lamp features a diffuser in photo-etched injection-molded polycarbonate, and a reflector in painted die-cast aluminum. The base and body in extruded aluminum with a painted or galvanized finish; choose from black, white, gold or blue-gray.
