Rim table lamp by Japanese born Paris based designer Jun Yasumoto is a simplified take on the lampshade idea. Made of steel, aluminium and lampshade fabric, the piece diffuses light on one side and reflects it on the other. The circular frame moves freely around the bulb, allowing the user to chose different angles and control the direction of the light.
Designer claims that the minimalist style of Rim was only partly chosen for aesthetic reasons. The simple construction eliminates a complex production process and makes manufacturing more affordable. Rim lamp comes in black and yellow.
