daniel rybakken: ascent for luceplan



conceived by daniel rybakken for luceplan, the design proposes a new gesture for turning on and regulating light. it is available in two versions: with a base; or an anchor bolt for tables which is impact resistant thanks to a co-molded base of steel and rubber, offering users the ability to tilt the cylindrical shaft up to 15 degrees.the simple act of moving the ‘ascent’ table lamp’s shade up and down its central technopolymer stem, allows users to adjust the intensity of the light emitted–at the base it sits at 0% and as one slides it upwards it gets brighter, ascending to full light at the top. the lathed head is made from an aluminum sheet, anodized with an aluminum tone that is painted in a black finish, accompanied by a steel base of the same color. conceived by
