Influenced by physics and engineering, designer Sam Weller has named the lamp "Fifty-fifty" because of his counterweight system that creates a balance between the two parts. The single cantilever arm is easy to tilt and pivot with one hand, featuring a touch-sensitive dimmer switch for precisely positioning and controlling the light source.
The collection comprises lamps with weighted bases in large and small sizes, and a floor lamp.
