The movement of a canoe paddle blade through water was the inspiration for Benjamin Hubert's Paddle Lamp.

Paddle is a collection of adjustable LED task lights, designed by Hubert for Italian lighting manufacturer Fabbian, that will launch at Euroluce during Milan Design Week 2011.
"The high brightness led light source and capacitive touch control is contrasted with a tactile range of material to soften the technology and create a more human range of products."
"The framework of the lamp is available in either ash timber or texture lacquered aluminum with the paddle head formed from pressed aluminum."
"The product focuses on the flowing relationship between adjustable elements whilst retaining a utilitarian architectural quality."
