The Za-Za Lamp Spins its Flat Shade to Give it More Dimension

A light fixture can be as simple or as ornate as the designer desires, so long as it succeeds in supplying illumination. The Za-Za Lamp falls to the more basic side of the spectrum, but is certainly not lacking in charm.

Crowned with a bright LED light, the beveled oak wood block acts as the base for the piece. It stands upright and has a lacquered screen fastened to it in an off-centered position. This unconventional lampshade is almost entirely flat, except for the slightly sloped edges on three sides. The rectangle has two corners that give it a softness and contribute a little visual variety. This part of the Numéro 111 Za-Za Lamp comes in gunmetal gray or white and it can be rotated to modify its form.
