The all-girls-design-collective ROOMS has been at it again! This time they bring us their latest product, the Position lamp, a perfectly crafted wooden delight. The inspiration for this lamp is the classic metal desk light. ROOMS reinvented it and softened its look. It has been made from wood this time around and its timber shade has a bigger, elongated shape. Similarly to its metal predecessor, it can be adjusted through a system of spring balancing and provides a direct light. It can be fixed into three positions. The Position lamp will be developed into three versions: a table light, a wall hung light and a suspended model.
ROOMS was founded by designers Nata Janberidze and Keti Toloraia, who became friends while studying at the Tbilisi Academy of Art. Recently, they have acquired a new partner Baia Davitaia. They intend to create inventive, catchy, playful, ironic and distinctive designs. ROOMS' take on design is 'think globally act locally'. The girls practice what they preach and bring their fresh, international style to their native Georgia, situated at the dividing line of Asia and Europe. Their studio and most of their work can be found in the capital Tbilisi.
The Position lamp has currently been developed as a prototype and ROOMS are looking for a manufacturer. We at Yatzer love the ROOMS aesthetic and we look forward to seeing more of their great products coming our way!
