Inspired by a range of shapes and structures but mostly by a type of windmill used for pumping water, Romanian designers from 201 Design Studio created for Ubikubi LightTale, a floor lamp in which the sense of balance and good proportion work together to serve functionality.
The geometric shape of the shade gives a sense of touch to the light which is otherwise an indefinite element. It acts mostly the same way the windmill harnesses wind to transform it into energy, only this time energy is transformed into light.
The tail at the back of the shade gives comfort and ease in directing the light source to the desired angle. The shade can be rotated around the stem of the lamp at 180 degrees and made to face up or down at 75 degrees. It provides a cone of light suitable for reading or writing but can also be used for creating a warm ambient in the room.
