Ayno lighting collection by Stefan Diez for Midgard

Dezeen Showroom: German lighting brand Midgard has added a new Silk Grey colour option to its Ayno lighting collection, designed by Stefan Diez around an arced fibreglass rod.

The Ayno collection of floor and table lamps are designed to be flexible and adjustable without the use of joints.

The lamps have a curving rod of slender fibreglass, which is pulled into the desired position by adjusting two rings and a textile-coated cable that stretches between them.

This tension design is borrowed from a Bauhaus-era Midgard product, while LED light and low-voltage technology enable Ayno's cable to be impressively thin.

"The design of Ayno is based on the idea of creating an adjustable luminaire that is even more minimalist than its Midgard predecessors, yet seeks their proximity and speaks a thoroughly technical language," said Midgard owners David Einsiedler and Joke Rasch.

All Ayno models are available with either a neon orange or neutral black cable, and the cone-shaped shade is made of durable and recyclable polycarbonate.

The Silk Grey colour is available across all three models in the Ayno range – one table lamp and two-floor lamps.
