Ascent Table Light by Daniel Rybakken

By moving the lampshade along the stem of Ascent, a table Light by Daniel Rybakken, the light intensity goes from being turned off at the bottom to gradually ascending to full light output at the top.

"This gives the user control over not only the light intensity, but also the spread of the light." says Rybakken.



"The visual elements of Ascent are all recognizable, from the classic head to the round stem, but it is the way you use Ascent that makes it different from existing lights."


"The gesture of sliding the head upwards for more light and down for less is a conceptual idea, but at the same time an action that feels natural."


Ascent comes in two versions, with an anchor bolt for tables, or with a base. The anchor bolt is made impact resistant by having a co-molding of steel and rubber in the base, allowing up to 15 degree of tilt of the stem.


Ascent will be presented at Salone del Mobile 2013 at Fiera Milano, Rho with Luceplan. More at Daniel Rybakken. Photos: Luceplan.
