Petal Lamp

The Petal Lamp was inspired by the last petal on a flower before it dies. That temporary and delicate moment is what served as the point of inspiration. The lamp is composed of a paper petal that gently hangs off the main body of the lamp, the steel stem. The petal can be moved to provide a variety of directional lighting options.
