Can

Can is an excellent lamp collection designed by the Stockholm based architecture and design studio, TAF, for the Swedish lighting company Zero.

The lamp works as a can filled with light. By keeping the light inside the lampshade the border between light and darkness appears much clearer. Can is made of cast steel which is lacquered in a bright yellow colour at the inside and available as pendant, table and floor lamp. In a low tech way the yellow colour also makes the lamp look lit even though it is off.

I really enjoy the touch of yellow colour on the inside, which demonstrates how a great design can be achieved with a simple detail like this, resulting in added personality to the final product.
