The Lyrea is a table lamp that’s just at this perfect crossroad of beautiful and clever. Its unusual shape makes it stand out from afar, and when you come up close, you’re enchanted by the way it makes clever use of a curved piece of metal to switch between bright and diffused lighting. A small knob below the bulb can be rotated along a linear path, turning the curved metal piece inside (mimicking the action of an ambulance beacon). You simply rotate the knob to adjust the intensity of the light… mechanically rather than electrically! Isn’t it just delightful!?
