The SOL Source of Light is Defined by a Sliding Glowing Strip

The operation of the SOL (Source of Light) Lamp unexpectedly has a great deal in common with the way that you drawn your window blinds open and shut. The unique fixture has a long set of tracks that cantilever horizontally, acting as a frame for a flexible ribbon-like light that can be pulled tightly or loosened depending on preference.

A sturdy cubic base holds the slender metal spine of the floor lamp steady, allowing it to support the weight of its lateral arm, extending about 2 meters sideways, at a length greater to the height of the stand. These parallel components are extremely fine and hold the glowing strip. This feature of Jin Woo Han's SOL can be caused to straighten and sag in order to affect the direction of illumination.
