No, this is not a colonial artifact or a witch's broom. It's the Ugol, a sleek lamp that fits on the corner of your table. Designer Yaroslav Misonzhnikov from Saint Petersburg debuted the Ugol, which means "corner" in Russian, at Salone Satellite 2013. "The main idea was to create a lamp without different settings," he tells us. "I dont like to fix lamps."
How it works: Simply slide the Ugol to the table's vertex and it will incline by its own weight. That's it!
"In my lamp you don't need anything," says Misonzhnikov. But it's a little more complex than meets the eye. "I like that this lamp has some limitations," Misonzhnikov says. "You can't use round table, very thick table (more than 2,5 cm), and so on; this is part of concept also."
Minimal installation, minimal design, and just a little quirky. What's not to like? Click through for more photos!
