Ross Gardam designed the Hemera Desk Lamp. It is a modern and minimalist classic that pays homage to the brutalist architecture of 60 years ago. Combining two solid circular volumes with subtlety and finesse, this piece from the New Volumes collection is a striking desktop monolith and a lighting device of refined functionality, with no overtly visible light source. The Hemera Desk Lamp is a powerful testament to the simplicity of form.
