This Sleek Table Lamp Hides in Plain Sight

Barcelona-based Jaume Ramírez experimented with timeless forms and modern technology to create Fragile, a totally transparent table lamp that hides in plain sight for Marset. The simple design—spherical body, cone-shaped shade, cylindrical LED—casts light in all directions while showing off its internal structure. The silhouette is a sort of abstracted hybrid of the archetypal oil lamp and tapered candles, though the materiality of the clear or amber glass (and the name itself) is meant to symbolize the temporary nature of the present moment. Peep it at Lightology.
