Bolita Lamp by Studio kaschkasch

The Bolita Lamp, designed by studio kaschkasch, is a modern piece of design that beckons to be touched. The lamp was designed for marset in 2019 and won an adi award in 2020. Its minimalistic design features a mechanical dimming process and a technologically innovative structure. The structure is simple, yet captivating: a rounded surface houses an LED and an overlapping glass sphere.

When the glass sphere is moved, it dims and boosts the light, producing a visually stunning effect. In a digital era, where a click of a button can buy anything, and a swipe of a finger can read, a sense of touch is sometimes lost. The Bolita Lamp seeks out that user interaction, and with its beautiful design and mechanical dimming process, is sure to bring back the tactile experience. Its idea is simple yet magical, making it the perfect combination of modern technology and user interaction.
