Maison&Objet 2014: this simple lamp by design studio Something for French brand Ligne Roset has a bell-shaped shade similar to a wild flower (+ slideshow).

London-based Daniel Debiasi and Verona-based Federico Sandri of Something designed the Campanule lamp for Ligne Roset to look like a bellflower, found in woodlands and hedgerows around the temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere.

"We are not quite sure whether the bellflower was really the starting point or just the outcome, but it certainly was part of the process; thus the name," Debiasi told Dezeen.

Campanule, the French name for a bellflower, consists of three powder-coated steel elements that are welded together.

The shade is rounded at the back and widens slightly towards a circular opaline glass diffuser, which hides the bulb and creates a warm glow.

The shade points down at an angle, fixed to a straight stem that is weighed down by a round base.

"The dome-shaped shade, the thin cylindrical stem and the round base are actually three very common elements in lighting design," said Debiasi, "but it is the combination, the angles and the proportion of the three that seems to create something quite curious."

Campanule comes in black, light blue and white, with a fabric-covered electricity cord.

"The result, in our view, is a solid object which starts from archetypal elements and assembles them in a simple but proportionate way," Sandri told Dezeen.

The design was shown at both Maison & Objet in Paris and IMM Cologne earlier this year.

This is the duo's second collaboration with Ligne Roset. Last year they designed a ceramic lamp with a cavity in its side that emitted a diffused glow.
