Ciconia is a modern LED lamp designed by Rainer Bachschmid for Topdeq. The lamp has a convincing dual function, when folded it becomes a delicate light sculpture and design object emitting a soft lighting in your workplace creating a pleasant working atmosphere and when opened up it gives a pleasant LED lighting directly to the desktop. In designer’s words, “I take my inspiration from the ever-changing moods of the natural sunlight. My aim was to develop a flexible, adjustable light using cutting edge, eco-friendly LED technology.
Folded down, Ciconia is a minimalist ambient light – folded up it shows an amazing competence as a desk light. Just as the sun, Ciconia has the power not only to adapt to moods, but also to provoke emotions.”
