Lamp Shade Is Also A Light Bulb
The Symtra lamp has no traditional bulb and instead embeds the light directly into the "shade" using LED technology.
Humanscale‘s new lighting innovation, the Symtra lamp, has no traditional bulb, instead embedding the light directly into the “shade.” Developed in partnership with designer Peter Stathis, the lamp reconstructs the traditional light fixture, offering a “contemporary interpretation of the archetypal lampshade form.” Symtra features sleek lines and a minimalist frame, combining the beauty of traditional lamps with advanced LED technology.
Utilizing optical waveguide technology, the inside of the shade emits a warm, glare-free light, while the outside is finished in black. The lamp head can be rotated 360° so it can be directed to where you need it. Symtra is expected to be released later this year at a price of $400. Stathis described the lamp as:
A contemporary light that merges poetics with technology, symbolism with function and aesthetics with ideology in creating a new image for a long traditional lighting icon.
