Designer Scott Wilson of Chicago-based studio MINIMAL has created the Sisifo Lamp for Italian lighting company Artemide. The Sisifo lamp has a hybrid design that blends task lamp with table lamp. The designer wanted to create “a large diffused disk of light that gracefully balances and easily rotates 360 degrees to direct a soft, powerful light source.” The Sisifo Lamp was introduced at Milan during the Salone del Mobile 2012.
According to the designer, “With its spherical central articulation, Sisifo guarantees maximum freedom in directing light with minimum encumbrance at the base, allowing use on both larger tables and smaller bedside surfaces. The light consists of a smaller footprint weighted base that employs a double ball joint, allowing the floating light panel to be positioned as desired. The lamp head and light source utilize micro lenticular surface details to amplify the light output. Sisifo’s generous adjustable diffuser eliminates unwanted harsh shadows and provides a soothing familiar feeling.”
