Inspired by modern design from the 1920s, where creating simple design can oftentimes require complicated structure, he wanted to look at things in a different way. Using a 1mm thick plate for the top part of the lamp and 3mm thick plate for the base, that are then connected by a tube, the lamp’s only other parts are two magnets, a screw, and a lightbulb.

The bright yellow lamp swivels with the help of two powerful neodymium magnets. Level the top circular disc flat for the light to resemble a table and give you a night-light type feel.

The light comes out from underneath the top disc, so adjust the direction as you see fit.
