Ascent: table lamp by Daniel Rybakken for Luceplan

On occasion of the Milan Design Week 2013 Daniel Rybakken will present “Ascent”, a table lamp that uses the same archetypical head found on Counterbalance lamp (Luceplan), mounted on a slender vertical stem. By moving the head along the stem, the light intensity goes from being turned off at the bottom position, to gradually ascending to the full light output at the top. This gives the user control over not only the light intensity, but also the spread of the light.

The visual elements of Ascent are all recognizable, from the classic head to the round stem, but it is the way you use Ascent that makes it different from existing lights. The gesture of sliding the head upwards for more light and down for less is a conceptual idea, but at the same time an action that feels natural.

Ascent comes in two versions, with an anchor bolt for tables, or with a base. It will be presented during Euroluce at: Fiera Milano, Rho (Hall 13, Stand B19 C18) – Luceplan showroom (Corso Monforte 7, Milano).
