Vertigo Black Small Pictures
Vertigo is a timeless and fascinating lamp. The French designer Constance Guisset describes her lamp as a den-lamp: "It wraps around you, reducing space to an intimate athmosphere."
The ultra-light fibreflass structure, stretched with velvelty polyurethane ribbons is bound to fascinate. When an air current passes through the weightless lamp slowly moves and turns and creates engaging patterns and shadows on the walls. The Vertigo creates its own intimate ambience adapting to both large and small spaces. It's graphic and ethereal look create's an exiting design.
