Called Buoy, the lamp has a blown glass shade and spun aluminium cap, suspended from an aluminium tube with a flex protected by silicone.

Here are some more details from Mattias Ståhlbom:


Buoy — Mattias Ståhlbom

A light in the darkness. A friend in need. Mattias Ståhlbom’s Buoy is the designed continuation of a series of fittings with marine references such as Bottle and Fisherman. This year, he starts off with safe things like buoys and fenders, and has Buoy made of glass and spun aluminium. The result is twofold: brittle and safe.
