Switch Table Lamp

c. 2007

by Nendo
for Oluce

The Switch lamp, designed by Japan­ese designer Nendo, revis­its the shape of the classic abat-jour by renew­ing both its mate­ri­als and its func­tion. The arche­typal shape of the cylin­dri­cal lamp­shade is trans­formed by using metal while its func­tion as a diffuser is combined with that of a switch’, hence its name. In fact, the lamp is switched on and off by turning the sheet metal lamp­shade, inex­tri­ca­bly blend­ing shape and func­tion, aesthet­ics and functionality.
