Instead of the usual upright position that most table lamps have, the Placa Lamp by Goncalo Campos droops downwards, resembling a wilting flower.

The very simple table lamp is actually quite beautiful in a very minimal and serene way. The tilted lamp sits on a solid ash-wooden board, creating a little platform for placing other objects on top of it. The lamp shade, made of black velvet material, cleverly drops towards the light switch as if to point it out on the wooden plank. It's nice placement instead of it being on the cord like other lighting fixtures.

Despite its simplicity, the Placa Lamp by Goncalo Campos has a quiet and unique character due to its withering structure that is captivating.
