An extension to the AMBIT series, Stockholm-based TAF Architects have developed a new interpretation of the quintessential billiard table lamp.
AMBIT RAIL is constructed out of three shades mounted onto a tube, a well-known yet charming typology which showcases what seems like a reformed, modernised chandelier. The AMBIT RAIL leaves a minimal yet striking impression which compliments a diverse set of surroundings.
A key focus in the design process was the fluidity of the lamp. All joints and cables are hidden, and the supporting wires are remarkably thin, causing the lamp to seamlessly float in mid-air.
A statement lamp with lots of character. With its three lamp shade the rail lamps gives away a strong light that makes it perfect for use as a primary light source.

TAF ARCHITECTS' DESIGN PHILOSOPHY
“TAF’s aim is to make ordinary life less ordinary through subtle but effective changes in how products and architecture appear and function. A recurrent departure point in our projects is that everyday objects by their very commonness can be made uncommon.”
TAF ARCHITECTS ON NEW NORDIC DESIGN
“We think that the New Nordic design will keep its position and keep the good social values that it is famous for. The use of wood has always been part of our tradition and we believe it is something to develop further.”
