Circle

The Circle lamp has been created by Stockholm based designer Monica Förster for Italian furniture brand De Padova. And as the name suggests, the shape of the piece shows the elements of circular geometry. The circle-shaped base gives a starting point to a circular frame, which in turn serves as a stand for the third circle – a lampshade. Here is how Förster explains this concept:

The idea to this lamp has been to go ”back to basic” and work with simple geometric shapes – a half circle. The half circle looks simplified from the side but looking at the lampshade from the front it has a double curved shape, bending over the frame. 

I love the delicate simplicity of the piece. It is pleasing to see that variations of a singular geometric shape can inspire such a beautiful silhouette. The lamp is made of bent sheet metal with a matte rubber finish.
