The concept of floor lamp THE EDGE.01 was to create a glowing, sculptural body; a lamp with indirect light distribution. The body is made of an aluminium composite panel that is usually used for facade claddings. Because of its particular material property, the material is used now in a new field of application – a lamps body. By milling and cutting the panels on one side, the material can be folded into form within minutes. This trick (trans)forms a light, stiff and self-supporting construction.
