Hover Light: Hanging Table Lamp with Secret Wire Supports


Lamp base, stem and tapered cylindrical shade – all are recognizable components of a classic table lamp design, which helps sell the illusion that this strange white light is hovering free in space.

Hareide Design worked with Northern Lights to create this light-on-a-string design, radially symmetrical around a central wire that ties it both to the ceiling above and floor below.

As neat a trick as it may be, one has to wonder about the practical side of this endeavor. Sure, you now have a nice side-table surface to set down a wine glass, but at what cost when the wires that hold it in place could be tripping hazards (and the wiring is, well, difficult at best).
