Empty Light by Amanda Buckley

This table lamp by Royal College of Art graduate Amanda Buckley has a ring of LEDs tucked under the rim of the shade to reflect a diffused glow from the empty shade.

"The lamp uses a soft wash of white to reflect the main light source," says Buckley. "When I designed it I was really obsessed with reflective light and how it could be used in an everyday functional setting but in a way that was subtle and beautiful."

A friction hinge means it can be adjusted to cast light over a workspace or up into the room.

Buckley developed the Empty Light while studying on the college's Design Products course and presented the prototype at Show RCA 2012 last month. It's the first in a range that will include a floor-standing light and a pendant light.
