What makes for an ideal table lamp? At Menu it is about design’s ability to make instant visual impact and tell a story – paired with a subtlety that makes the lamp an equal, collaborative partner in defining the overall room ambience.
It should incorporate the latest technology – yet also have an organic, natural dimension that conceals technical elements and contributes sculpturally. Menu is pleased to introduce a new, portable table lamp design that does all this, and more.
Inspired by the bollards on board ships, the new Column Table Lamp from Norm Architects combines technology and mood-setting style in a striking mushroom shape with modern edge and a natural feel. It’s a design that embodies freedom. Freedom of form in its bold, cylindrical elements. Freedom of light in its dimmable LED bulb. And, perhaps most importantly, freedom of movement, as the cordless Column Table Lamp can go wherever you do, and is rechargeable via a USB charger.
Sprinkle them throughout the office to bring a warm, relaxed ambience to counteract the usual fast pace. Set it down on the lounge coffee table or on the terrace as you enjoy post-dinner conversation or drinks. Use them in the lobbies of hotels or restaurants to draw people in – and swap out the standard table candles with something sturdier and more conversation-worthy. Lightweight and durable, with a beautiful finish, it’s a design you’ll want to try out in all your favourite spots.
The Task Pendant
Lightweight yet strong in its construction, the Task Pendant emits directed, adaptable, downward, wide-angle light via an elegant led bulb that can fully illuminate a conference table. It is suspended from nearly invisible fishing wire, creating the illusion of hanging freely in mid-air. The LED Task Pendant is crafted from extruded anodized aluminium and available in a bronze grey finish. The pendant features the e3 smart lighting system, which is controlled via an app.
Using the mobile app, you can control the pendant’s light intensity and color temperature. You can also add multiple fixtures to the same system, making it easy to control one or many lamps with the swipe of a finger. If the lamp is installed without the app, it defaults to a medium temperature and intensity for everyday work and life.
The Circular Lamp
Smart technology hidden in a soft, organic form that appears anything but technical: this is the beautiful contrast that defines Rotterdam-based studio WM’s new circular lamp. The indoor pendant was conceived to meet our constantly changing lighting needs. To do so, it comes with an app, making it easier than ever to adjust both the light intensity and color temperature to best suit the time of day, the season, or the desired ambience.
The Circular Lamp’s sophisticated reflector uniformly distributes diffused, comfortable light that does double duty as both task lighting and general, mood-setting room illumination. Imagine switching the mood in the office from work to happy hour, or shifting gears from well-lit cooking to intimate entertaining in the home kitchen – all with just a few taps on your phone or tablet, from anywhere you happen to be. It’s that simple.
