The way in which the Rope Trick Lamp adjusts is wonderfully original. You might not be able to figure it out immediately from the photos, but a simple shift is all that it takes to turn a downward-facing beam into an upward-facing one.
The backbone of the floor lamp is a slender plastic stand that's been covered in tightly woven fabric. The upper part of this spine is malleable, allowing you to bend it back and forth easily. The glossy lampshade is connected to the LED head -- the component that can be moved along the strap track to change the angle of the light. As you push it back, the loop gradually points down and the lightbulb up. The Stefan Diez Rope Trick Lamp can act as a spotlight for reading or an indirect atmospheric source of illumination.
