String F1 by Rotaliana: flexibility meets modern design
The floor lamp String stands out thanks to a minimalistic design that is based on the classic tension spring lamp. While arms, base and lamp head sport a straight-forward and clear formal language, an elastic string plays the crucial role of the eponymous detail, lending the lamp its recognizability as well as is flexible functionality.
String F1 can be moved into many different positions and the light of its reflector can be directed precisely where needed. Next to a sofa or an armchair, String is a perfect reading lamp – not least of all because the warmwhite, direct light is comfortably dazze-free thanks to a diffuser, and can be dimmed with the help of a push button that is located directly on the lower side of the lamp head, easy to reach.
The lamp head is flat and round with a hole in its middle. The diffuser is ring-shaped, surrounding the hole on the lower side of the lamp head.
The two arms are slender aluminium profiles with harmoniously rounded ends. The elastic string runs along both arms, half hidden in a groove, but still a visible part of the design that may appear as a striking contrast or a more discreet element depending on the chosen colours.
The lamp comes equipped with a silver-coloured elastic string. Additional strings in black and orange are included in the delivery and can be manually exchanged to create different looks.
