Cyborg

Finalist

Designer: Karim Rashid - Designer
Design Type: Lamp
Company / Organization / School: Martinelli Luce
Website: http://karimrashid.com

Cyborg is a sensual and minimal vision of the future. The small, die-cast aluminum lamp responds to human contact thanks to touch-sensitive controls, with its LED light source emanating from its center. Cyborg embodies the desire to create a table lamp closely tied to our present moment (or better, to a very near future), synthesizing art, design, and technology. Thanks to the digital age we have new technologies, production processes, materials, software, and tools that allow for Cyborg’s intuitive design and sinuous form.
