The Topaze Table Lamp embodies the marriage of two styles that exude an alluring contemporary aesthetic. Jointly inspired by organic forms and the minimalist tradition, this piece brings detail to a room without any of the visual fuss.

Nack Petiot and Amandine Peyresoubes of Pygmalion Studio have designed a squared version and a squat rectangular model of the light fixture. Predominantly, the pieces have been manufactured from cut sheets of aluminum that then undergo a subtle creasing of the four rounded corners. The effect of the manipulated metal is reminiscent of cut jewel facets.

These diffusing lampshade facades are set into wooden block bases that contain and conceal the light sources. The blue and white Topaze Table Lamps emit a bright white glow from behind for a lovely soft atmosphere.
