Hallo Work Lamp

industrial design

Hallo Work lamp by German design studio 45 Kilo was inspired by Jean Prouvés' famous Potence lamp. Minimal and precise, just like its predecessor, Hallo Work offers a concentrated beam of light rather than the overall illumination. And because the beauty of a targeted lighting is in its ability to point at objects at different levels, the clever height changing mechanism has been put in place. Designers elaborate:

We found a very simple solution for the height changing mechanism. It consists of a wire that is attached to the head and the wall piece which leads through a leather strap. The height can then be changed by moving the strap along the arm.

I love the thin delicate look of the piece. The impressive range and flexibility makes for a perfect equilibrium between form and function.
