capsule lamp

Named “Capsule” for obvious reasons, this table lamp by designer Miika Mahonen has an unconventional but intuitive method of turning off and on – simply pull up on the “shade” to reveal bright LED light, or push down to create a thin line of light that provides a subtle ambient glow. Cast from aluminum, this design is both functional and recyclable, though, you won’t want to throw it away anytime soon.
