There is a whimsical quality to the Breeze Lamps because, although they embody artificial forms made from industrial materials, they playfully reference the natural effect of standing amidst gale force winds. The pair of floor lamps comprises little round bases and and compact rectilinear lids that are joined by slender stands that slant dramatically.

Bao-nghi Droste Design has given some personality to the aluminum and steel pieces that might easily have exuded a minimalist or utilitarian quality. Look closely at the LED-embedded tops of the Breeze Lamps and you'll notice that they're irregular trapezoid shapes, emphasizing the obliqueness that's made so prominent by the diagonal post. Practically speaking, the tilted design of the blue and white lights makes them direction, and perfect for a desk or a bedside table.
