qisdesign: coral reef light

‘coral reef table light’ by q is design

the ‘coral reef light’, created by tawain-based design studio qisdesign (‘q is design’), is an LED lamp with an organic-like form, designed in collaboration with taiwan’s national museum of marine biology and aquarium.

the design is produced as a silver-coloured table lamp, standing 465mm (18.3 inches) tall, and a metallic floor lamp standing 1618mm (5.3 feet), both composed of aluminum alloys and polycarbonate. the floor lamp features three petals, each independently activated by swiveling, while the table lamp has a single adjustable layer and is activated by a touch dimmer on the stand.
