How do you translate a movement into a physical shape? With the Suspence™ lamp series Danish/Italian design duo GamFratesi created the form by pulling. The tensile force is visible at the top of the lamp, at the little tip! The natural soft curve of the lamps body is ”very GamFratesi” and the designers manage to make classic elegance blend into contemporary minimalism by working with small, subtle gestures. Notice the infinity diffuser in the pendant! And how the Nomad version is designed to be moved around, indoors but also ”on the terrace on a cosy summer evening”. While awaiting summer the Suspence™ lamp has, with its conceptual as well as functional approach to lighting, potential to be a favorite in many a Scandi homes.
