Daniel Libeskind's 'Paragon' table lamp is so deliciously modern that we just had to post about it. Made exclusively for Artimide, this segmented design resembles a high-rise building or a robotic limb or a robotic high-rise.
The lamp is currently on display at Artimide's Milan Design Week 2013 showroom. Clearly, Libeskind drew strongly from his knowledge of architecture to make the Paragon. Here he speaks about the design:
"Like a miniature skyscraper when standing perpendicular, the 'Paragon' consists of four segments so that the lamp can be playfully bent at three joints to create a myriad of interesting geometric shapes; sometimes it can be made to look like a perched bird, at other times it resembles a rocket poised for launch. a lamp head fitted with the latest LED technology tops the vertical extrusion which acts as a paragon for all the other potential forms derived therefrom."
There doesn't seem to be any pricing information, but check out Daniel Libeskind's website for more details.
