Petal Lamp

Petal lamp captures a delicate moment; when a wilted petal slowly retracts from the main body of the flower. The temporary nature of the action is preserved in time with paper and steel. The essence of the moment is the slight yield of the shade to the body, not purely perpendicular but softly falling away.

Gentle repositioning of the petal allows for some authority over the type of light cast. The petal acts as a bounce not dissimilar from that of a photographer's toolkit. Gentle sweeping shadows paint the surrounding space with arrays of ambient light providing a variety of directional lighting options.
