Balance Lamp by Victor Castanera

The Balance light appears to carefully suspend a series of spheres, almost as if time has stopped and they were caught in mid-action rolling down the sloped slats. Victor Castanera paid thoughtful attention to material choices when designing Balance so the lamp would stay, well, in perfect balance. Designed for Oblure, the light will add a feeling of playfulness and will keep your curiosity piqued as to how it stays in place.

Balance combines a heavy black marble base with handblown glass and metal spheres atop steel boards. Custom LEDs were designed to spread light evenly and to last a long time.

Balance also comes in a brass version, if you prefer.
