Cradle is a lamp for an entrance or hallway. The base of the lamp is designed to fit a few personal objects, keys, change, wallet, phone that can be left and then found again easily when leaving the house.
The lampshade is not fixed, but suspended on an aluminium structure using the lamp’s cord. Taken away from the structure, it can be used as a torch, to look into a bag or a cupboard.
The lamp is also the result of research into materials. Concrete, traditionally used as a building material is used in a delicate way with a smooth finish and fine details. Its heaviness makes the lamp both visually and functionally more grounded and stable. Its rough aspect contrasts with the mat white finish of the lamp shade.
