The Suyo Table Light, taking its title from the Spanish word for “yours,” investigates people’s connections with the things around them. McKay Nilson designed the 3D-printed lamp for the lighting company Gantri. It has an opening in the base and a bowed head—a shape inspired by the gesture a person makes when giving an object to another.
With this light, McKay Nilson brings together the functionality of light and storage with more formal, thoughtful qualities to create a piece that’s both practical and aesthetically pleasing.
The Suyo light is printed in white, coral, and gray at Gantri’s California facility, where they 3D print using a corn-based PLA material, making the process better for the environment.
