The fixed impossible position of the orbs is an expression of the fragility of existents. All entities move and nothing remain still. Balance is a play with the concept of time – everything is in motion. The group of spheres stuck in time is a reminder that life is movement, no matter what. Sometimes the opposite and impossible is a reminiscence of life’s possibilities.
The Balance lamp is a splendidly decorated product to be released by Swedish brand Oblure which is designed by Spanish designer Victor Castanera.
The lamp’s base is made from black marble to help steady the structure. Two white glowing orbs sit on slanted steel boards that are balanced by two small black metal balls of the perfect weight to offset the weight of the opposite parts of the lamp. A black marble base with white flecks throughout it brings together the black and white details of the rest of the lamp to create a visually striking sculptural table lamp.
The table lamp BALANCE is soon available and will be launched at the MAISON & OBJET in Paris early 2017.
