Unique and incredibly inventive, the Switch Table Lamp designed by Nendo for Oluce is a refreshing and modern take on the traditional table lamp. Made from metal and featuring a classic silhouette, this contemporary table lamp features the ability to control the amount of light cast by rotating the shade to dim the light. Concealed by the shade are two light sources, which cast direct and indirect lighting.
