This Table Lamp Plays with the Eye's Direction

Joshua Howe Design has produced the O-Votto Table Lamp made of steel, plastic and concrete. A two-toned plastic light diffuser rotates 360 degrees, allowing the user to change the amount of light that the lamp gives off. The small stainless steel bulb cover rotates around the socket concealing any unwanted hotspots as well. The cover is easily attached and detached with a simple clipping mechanism.

It's a functional and industrial light, perfect for any workspace. The combination of solids in the concrete base and thin steel arm make the lamp look light and sturdy. The design of the lamp is composed of simple forms, yet looks structural and elegant at the same time.

It seems to go from heavy and thick to thin and light as your eye moves upward.
