Australian designer Ross Gardam is launching the new ‘Polar’ desk lamp at Ventura Lambrate during this year’s Milan Furniture Fair. Accompanying Polar will be one of the individually numbered limited edition ‘Aura’ desk lamps in its first international preview.
The Polar & Aura products each explore articulation of light in two very different ways. Polar’s form and movement are inspired by natural seasonal phases of light. The circular disk arcs across the body of the product to illuminate and shade. “Polar is an alternate archetype for a desk lamp in both form and functionality” says Gardam.
About Polar Table Lamp
Reflection of Light and Shadow. A circular motif is used throughout Polar defining its minimal operative form. The product utilises a unique magnetically attached arm to allow the disc to rotate around the body directing or shading light. A friction disc in combination with magnets molded into the ceramic body allows the arm to snap into place and to function. Polar’s ceramic base is handcrafted using traditional slip casting and the surface is bisque fired and presented unglazed. The disk face is available in polar white, midnight blue and dusk pink as well as a gold mirror finish. “The gold mirror finish allows Polar to expand its functionality creating a lit place for reflection.” says Gardam.
