Named Fifty Fifty after the lamp’s counterweight system that creates equilibrium between the two parts, it is clear to see how Sam Weller’s references to physics and engineering influence the design.

Based on the idea of stripping a multi-purpose task light to its fundamental elements, Fifty Fifty balances refined, pared-back aesthetics with optimal functionality. Configurable aluminium components minimise the overall complexity of the design and manufacturing process, creating a feature of the joints and mechanisms that is consistent throughout the entire series. The single cantilever arm is easy to tilt and pivot with one hand, featuring a touch-sensitive dimmer switch for precisely positioning and controlling the light source. The collection comprises lamps with weighted bases in large and small sizes, a large table lamp with clamp base and a floor lamp. Suitable for shared or private areas in homes or corporate environments.


Sam Weller

Sam Weller is a British designer, born in Bath (UK) in 1985. With a background in Industrial Design and Engineering, Sam went on to study at the Royal College of Art in London, graduating in 2012 with a Master of Arts in Design Products. He later joined a small London-based workshop space to begin cultivating his own ideas and developments. To date, he has lived, studied and worked around the world in the UK, US and Asia, and now resides in Copenhagen, Denmark. Sam’s design work aims to be timeless and honest, focusing on a pared-back aesthetic that reflects a product’s material selection and function.
