Made from iridescent glass with a light reactive multi-coloured finish, the small tripodal table reacts with light, allowing the surface tones to flicker, depending on the viewer’s vantage point. Because the table is lacking in construction materials, it has a graceful nature about it, the shifts in colour lending it an ethereal, magical energy. Elegiacally contemporary the Shimmer table is brilliant in both its concept and physicality – Patricia Urquiola has created a complex, yet strikingly simple and very liveable piece.

Reinterpreting the magic of traditional lamps with sophisticated technologies and contemporary materials, the Hope lamp achieves an enviable effect in any setting.
