Hyper-Adjustable Ceramic Lamp

Mia Light by Federica Bubani

Despite its minimal design, this table lamp by Italian designer Federica Bubani is highly adjustable, giving the user control over the direction and intensity of the light. Entitled Mia (Italian for 'mine'), the lamp reflects a growing demand for products that can be adjusted or customised by the consumer.

Made simply from two ceramic cone-shaped forms, the smaller cone sits inside the base and can be shifted into a variety of positions, altering the brightness of the light by reducing or increasing the gaps between the cones. The forms themselves are slightly translucent and glazed on the inside to better reflect the light.

This practical and flexible design chimes with the aesthetic depicted in our latest Spring/Summer 2016 Design Direction, Extend. This direction addresses the need for flexible and intuitive products that can fit effortlessly into the life of a busy consumer seeking uncomplicated solutions – particularly when living in a smaller space.
