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.
