I love the quote about how this lamp came to fruition:
This design was inspired by illogical placed and/or operating switches for lighting.
To switch the lamp off, you have to pull down on the “eye” in the middle, breaking the circuit in the center, or utilizing whatever disconnect mechanism breaks the circuit. A unique design for sure – I wonder where the best application would lie for this fixture. My initial inkling would be somewhere in a smaller room.
Form follows function in this fixture.
