Owl lamp by Jun Yasumoto for Ligne Roset

Maison&Objet 2014: this flat circular lamp by Japanese designer Jun Yasumoto was designed to resemble an owl's wide eyes at night.

Jun Yasumoto designed Owl lamp for French furniture company Ligne Roset in three variations: a table lamp, reading light and a wall lamp. The white cotton shade can be pivoted around the light source to diffuse the light in a certain direction.

"This rotation enables the light reflected from the bulb to be modulated, directed, and softened by the other side of the disc, pivoting around the light source rather than confining it," said the designer.

A bare fluorescent bulb attached behind the flat shade emits a soft light when illuminated. The table lamp and reading lights are mounted on matte white lacquered-steel bases.

The lamps were shown at Maison et Objet and imm cologne earlier this year.
