Just like a man might tip his hat to say hello, the Monsieur floor lamp does the same. Designed by Marco De Masi for Officine Tamborrino, the steel lamp has four tubular legs with a removable lampshade tilted to welcome you into the room.

The slanted shade lets the user direct light to where it’s most needed, like over a chair for reading.
