The Mill Table Lamp is inspired by the Dexterity of the Basic Sphere
The 2016 Salone del Mobile (a furniture fair in Milan) took place this month and I’d like to show you one of my favorite projects that was presented there.
Mill is a movable table lamp that maintains its position using balance. Just two components – a ball, balanced on a cone – combined with gravity, afford the lamp an exceptionally wide range of motion. Mill uses energy efficient LEDs and is powered by a low-voltage USB connection. The table lamp was created by American-born, Netherlands-based designer Rachel Griffin who is the founder of Earnest Studio. Her work reflects research of traditional and industrial production methods while exploring themes of materiality and modularity.
