the exquisiteness of the aperture is often lost in the shadow of its technical applications. KDID honors the overlooked device with a simple, luminescent visualization in ‘pirouet’. the lamp smoothly slides open and closed, changing both the objects shape and the light it produces.

an infinite amount of settings enable users to change ‘pirouet’ to any condition. fill rooms with a cozy atmosphere by closing the lamp, or open it for a larger, brighter glow. the hanging light is manufactured by german lighting producer ridi leuchten in berlin. for more information on the product, click here.
