Inspired by architectural features such as archways and pediments. U Lamps are composed of simple geometric forms - an arch, a sphere and a cone. Playing with the concept of stacked shapes, the sphere seems to precariously balance upon the arch and support the cone shade above. Establishing an architecturally animated design.

The arched base is made from steel with a matte black patina. This contrasts with the brass sphere. Whilst the soft linen shade creates a glowing ambient light. The U Lamp creates a sculptural focal point for any contemporary interior.
