Conventional diffuser knobs are so passé. Just earlier this week we saw an inventive lamp that uses marble dust to make the light dimmer or brighter.The Ra Lamp by Sergey Gotvyansky explores a new way to take the diffuser and change the way one perceives it.
Linking the diffuser knob’s turning action to the path a sun takes in our sky during sunrise or sunset, the Ra Lamp comes with a shaft that rotates on an axis from 0 to 90°. When at 0, the lamp stays off. It reaches peak brightness at 90°, just like the sun is brightest when directly overhead. Pretty clever, don’t you think??
