Called Lantern, the light is made of glass and spun aluminium.
The lamp can be suspended at any height by clamping it to the long flex that passes through its shade and forms a pool on the floor.
Ligne Roset launched the design in Cologne last month. See all our stories from Cologne 2010 in our special category.
Here's some text from Hahn:
Manufactured by LIGNE ROSET
Height adjustable light
Made from spun aluminium and glass, the lamps of the LANTERN series operate within a typological framework, which finds its place somewhere between a floor lamp and a pendant lamp. By means of a clamp mechanism situated inside the lamps, they can be adjusted in height between floor and ceiling, moving it along the cord. With this in mind, the cable is, unusually, fed through the centre of the lamp. The configuration of lamp shade and cable utilises the geometry of the production processes and puts the traditional materiality into a new aesthetic and functional context.
