For its products Tonone often finds inspiration in old or existing mechanical techniques. For the creation of lamp Orbit the design team looked at the techniques used in the sailing world. Just like a sailboat’s rigging that hold the mast in place, the Orbit lamp stands firmly because it is supported by three stays. In this way a large floor lamp is created, but without a massive appearance.
The self-designed LED light source, the shade inspired by navigating by the stars, and the fact that the lamp is shippable in a compact box, makes Orbit an elegant, unique and clever design.
