The Pao collection of lamps is an exciting collaboration with established Japanese designer Naoto Fukasawa. Named after the soft, glowing shape of traditional Mongolian Pao tents illuminated at night-time, Fukasawa set out to encapsulate the same atmospheric warmth and friendliness in the Pao Steel Floor Lamp. Pao draws on Fukasawa’s aesthetic of beautiful simplicity; creating an everyday object that draws on design values existing in the natural world. By keeping the aesthetics modest and simple, he brings the design into harmony with its environment, reinforcing his primary intention of making the atmosphere pleasant and comfortable. The Pao Steel Floor Lamp comprises a weighted steel base and slim stand, with the distinctive shade in steel with a high-gloss finish in different colours. Designed for using with two replaceable standard retro fit LED bulbs and featuring an on/off floor switch, it provides a flexible output of light with a warm, homely glow. The lamp’s functionality and deliberate simplicity of design makes it suitable for a wide range of spaces and uses in domestic and corporate environments.
