Balancer is a showstopper in both function and form.
Expertly crafted in black, powder-coated steel, this floor lamp offers a stunning combination of light, geometry and style. Formed by clean, architectural lines and classic geometrical shapes, Balancer is uniquely interactive. Crafted in the shape of a cylinder, a heavy base anchors the structure firmly to the floor, while the movement of the shade poses a counterweight to the frame. At the turn of a swivel key, the shade levers upwards to cast light over the surroundings, or pivots downwards to direct it towards the floor. Balancer’s brightness is both diffuse and direct, creating a careful balance of atmosphere and ambient light.
Designers Weng Xinyu and Tao Haiyue were born in China, but live and work in Germany today. The duo studied design at Bauhaus University in Weimar before establishing their studio in Berlin. Together, Weng and Tao design furniture, lighting, interior accessories and office products for manufacturers around the world. Many of their products are characterised by interactivity, designed to engage consumers in unexpected ways as they forge connections with the user’s mind, body and emotions. Architectural Digest magazine named Yuue as one of the top designers in Germany, including them in a list of 50 design studios selected from across the country. As the duo continues to create original and innovative products, more awards are sure to come.
