Balancing Geometry – Floor Lamps & Wall Lighting by Square In Circle
Light can change the entire look of a room. Not only does it create a certain atmosphere, but in a way, it gives direction to the function of the space. Deciding which lights to use in an interior space is an important factor. Square In Circle, a London-based design studio, keep the importance of light design in mind with their range of geometric floor lamps. Designed through the use of different simple shapes and robust materials such as marble, metal and glass, this design studio uses a minimalist approach to create lamps that double as complete works of art.
Square in Circle works with different materials to experiment with how light can be displayed, as well as how a simple object such as a lamp can be seen as a work of art. The designers work on the principle of Bauhaus’ geometry combined with Gesamtkunstwerk, which translates from German to “universal artwork”. This allows the designers to draw influences from other forms of art, such as theatre, fashion and music. This can be seen in the way these functional artworks are constructed to create feelings of balance, proportion and movement.
