Lambent Chair, created by Glen Lewis-Steele was named using the adjective that has two different meanings that can describe the chair in short. The first meaning is of light, or fire and it represents something that glows, gleams, or flickers softly. The other meaning is more abstract and it represents something brilliant.
The chair is radiant and brilliant, just as the name suggests. The design and functionality were inspired by a collapsible toy giraffe made of wood. Depending on your needs, it can serve as a simple lamp, operated using a switch behind the braid, or as a reading light when you are sitting on the chair.
With this second option, your weight applies pressure on the inbuilt spring loaded mechanism, compressing it and forcing the lamp to angle towards you, providing a more focused beam of light.
The Lambent chair is made of the New Zealand beech wood and the lamp features LED lights. The entire construction seems airy and ethereal and could be a great addition to any minimalist interior. [via]
