Chair-Lamp Combo Auto-Adjusts for Optimal Illumination

Chair Lamp Combo 1

At first glance, it looks as if this is more sculpture than seat: the chair is missing its back legs. That’s a bit of an optical illusion, however, as the cord trailing down from the lamp clamped to the back is stronger than it seems. The ‘Lambent Chair’ by designer Glen Lewis-Steele features an unusual support system as well as a built-in auto-adjusting mechanism for comfort and convenience.

The base of the rope hides a bent metal bar to keep the chair upright, while the rest of the cord remains flexible.

Take a seat, and the crescent-shaped LED lamp will automatically bend down to greet you, stopping at just the right height for reading or writing.

The designer explains that the lamp includes an internal system of tension wires that tighten and loosen like tendons in a finger, so it bends when the user’s weight actives a spring-loaded mechanism. A childhood collapsible giraffe toy provided the inspiration for this novel function.
