The Matin table lamp offers a contemporary yet poetic design, with a construction that combines visual delicacy with physical robustness.
It consists of a steel wire bent frame finished in polished brass with matte black hardware, and is paired with a pleated cotton shade in a variety of vibrant colours. The light source is an integrated LED, offering a diffused downlight which is accompanied by a digital in-line dimmer control to adjust the output of light if required.
