Playful, poetic and pared back, Space Copenhagen’s design team have reimagined the traditional lantern with the calming and characterful Unbound Floor Lamp. With the teardrop-shaped marble base acting as an anchor, the white linen or natural canvas shade can be effortlessly rotated around it, as though it were a sail, gently billowing. Its dark antique brass ‘mast’ supports an array of dimmable LED lights within the shade that create a soft, diffuse and evenly distributed light. The largest of the Unbound Floor Lamps, it can be used to create a bold, standalone statement, or it can be paired with the medium and small versions to create a sculptural cluster. Changing the angles of the ‘sails' to each other makes a calming, floating and dynamic sculpture, even when switched off. This balance of character and sophistication make the Unbound Floor Lamps destined to grace both the private home and grand projects alike.
The pared-back take on a traditional Japanese paper lantern balances the ethereal and the functional, while challenging the conventions of the typology in its playful asymmetry.
The Unbound Collection fulfils Space Copenhagen’s ambition to create a practical but poetic lantern with a distinctive sculptural character that does not impose on the space around it.
