Contemporary Cool: Long & Flexible Swing-Arm Floor Lamp

A traditional swing-arm floor or table lamp has a relatively limited range of motion, and is often (inadvertently) aesthetically awkward in order to feature adjustable functionality. This lamp takes the ordinary forms and conventional appearance of a typical floor lamp – and adds a few unique twists that make it much more engaging.

The shade and upper stalk were designed by StrawberryKingdom to be simple – a white fabric cylinder (open top and bottom) sits atop a thin, mellow green-painted, powdered-steel pole. Below, however, the base branches out into three uneven wooden legs and the central support is affixed to a pivot point and terminates in a solid pendulum-style white cylinder.

The strange parallels and perpendiculars of the various structural elements and the curious arching flexibility as the main adjustable arm give this floor lamp a unique dynamic appearance from all angles and clearly invite people to interact with, swing and bend it into new positions. There is also a strangely anthropomorphism to the object – if abstract and (intentionally) awkward.
