The new AQ01™ desk light, designed by Anne Qvist from Anne Qvist Design Office, reveals a recognisable design expression while offering an innovative take of refined details and curved lines.
With its curvy edges and matte finish, the AQ01’s shade is designed to attract the human hand and can be switched on and off or dimmed directly on the head. The diffuser is made using a thicker material to prevent glare and give off 100 percent direct downward illumination in a symmetric rotational pattern.
The delicate arms connecting the two joints hide the wire within and keep it in place with an internal spring, keeping the lamp’s elegant exterior clear of excess visual elements. As a desk light, the AQ01 can be installed as a plug-in or placed in a table base and looks equally alluring with the wall bracket as a reading light in a lounge area or as a bedside light.
Anne Qvist’s design expresses a sense of pragmatism combined with respect for both craftsmanship and context. She believes in changeability and diversity, and emphasizes design that is able to enter many different contexts with a high level of usability, functionality and humanity. She categorizes design in a larger context, where it takes on new meaning and has the ability to enact change.
