Paddle

Paddle is a collection of adjustable LED task lights designed by Benjamin Hubert for Italian lighting manufacturer Fabbian launching in Euroluce during Milan Salone Del mobile 2011.

Paddle by Benjamin Hubert

Paddle has many axis of functional movement inspired by the 360 degree movement of a canoe blade through water. To allow for maximum usability in a variety of working environments.

The high brightness led light source and capacitive touch control is contrasted with a tactile range of material to soften the technology and create a more human range of products.

The framework of the lamp is available in either ash timber or texture lacquered aluminum with the paddle head formed from pressed aluminum.

The product focuses on the flowing relationship between adjustable elements whilst retaining a utilitarian architectural quality.

    Errmm, why does the ash paddle arm need to extend beyond the pivot? I can't see any functional benefit and it must compromise positioning of the lamp relative to a wall, no?

    • Bassel

      …this extension seems to help balancing the paddle. The designer obviously put aesthetics before functionality.

      so you can, errmm, paddle it!

  • Curator

    An unusual but beautiful lamp here, which is refreshing to see. Good details too. I look forward to seeing more.

  • jed

    paddles are on pivots, right?

  • NorisDesign

    Well I think it a pretty interesting design. Nice clean lines and forms. Great!

  • Kerby

    Looks like a 90's techno desk lamp mashup with a 'paddle'

  • capslock

    lacks delicacy in measurement. maybe later in his career this designer will shave off mm here and there. most of the work just looks little too over dimensioned.
