Here's some more information from Stephanie Jasny:

--

The floor lamp CORDULA takes inspiration from objects used on construction sites. Their simplicity beyond contemporary minimalism built the starting point for its design. The aim was to take an object from the construction site into the sitting room without denying its origin.

CORDULA is the crossbred of a spotlight and a cable reel. Ten metres of cable allow distant positioning from the power socket. With its additional pivot-joint CORDULA can be rotated by 90 degrees and together with an energy-saving fluorescent lamp it creates an flexible illumination.
