Kizu by Lars Tornøe

The Kizu table lamp is composed of two similar geometric shapes touching at a seemingly microscopic connection point. The shade appears to be balancing on top of the base, even though it is securely connected. This illusion is emphasised by the size of the shade in comparison to the base.

Turned marble stone with a matte finish was the material of choice for the base, as it provides the necessary weight to keep the lamp steady and elegantly complements the glossy shade.

The shade and the flat lid on top of it are both made in white acrylic, giving the lamp a cool, crisp look when its off and a softly diffused light when its on.

Kisu is Japanese for kiss.
