Tom Rossau has developed a brand new series of floor and ceiling lamps, which will be launched in May. The TR41 series has strong references to the design brand’s popular slatted lamps, TR7 and TR37, but the new design offers a new look that creates a special contrast to the soft slats. Here, the well-known cylinder is tightened up with a narrowing at the top, bottom and centre, which gives the lamp a special hourglass shape. However, the narrowing in the middle is located in the lower part of the lamp. This creates an interesting asymmetry between the upper and lower sections, giving the lamp an extra edge.
The new series consists of a floor lamp and pendant in three different sizes, which can work both together and separately. The lampshade is also made of a special material created by
mixing paper and plastic. In combination, these materials provide a pleasant opacity, high quality, and interesting texture, making the lamps a tactile experience. The lampshade is assembled with a piece of birch wood at the top, just as the floor lamp also stands on a base of birch wood, which gives the series’ sharp sculptural expression a warm and natural touch.
The TR41 is now ready for pre-order, and available in August ’21
