Pipe is a truly flexible light floor lamp and was designed by world renowned architect Herzog & de Meuron (Tate Modern, Birds Nest Stadium in Beijing) for Artemide. Made from a single tubular steel structure, the stem is wrapped in an anti-yellowing silicone case providing a uniform finish. The magnificent diffuser incorporates a large transparent lens and an internal aluminium reflector which radiates a babbled light effect visible around its parameter once illuminated. This is possible via the random perforations located across its surface. Collectively these materials improve the quality of the light emitted as well as enriching the whole of the design.
The upper section of the stem is pliable, allowing light to be easily directed. In addition, the touch dimmer located on the lower section of the rigid frame controls the light emission to varying intensities - ideal for reading or for creating an atmospheric backdrop.
Pipe is mounted on a deep steel base, cleverly painted in a 'soft touch' effect.
