Finnish designer Tuomas Auvinen designed a lamp that utilizes otherwise wasted space where the wall meets the ceiling. The design won Auvinen this year's Muuto Talent Award for students.

The lamp has a spotlight aesthetic, and the back is shaped at a 90-degree angle. You're able to nestle the lamp right up close to the ceiling or anywhere that two perpendicular surfaces meet. The circular face of the lamp always sits at a 45-degree angle. Auvinen says, "one day when entering an empty apartment, I wondered why the corners and angles were not better exploited." This design aims to fill that space in a stylish, functional way.

The lamp could be left to rest on the floor, suspended by its cord or fastened to the wall. Wherever you choose to put the lamp, it will cast light at a room-filling 45-degree angle.
