Line lamp is a minimalist table lamp created by Canadian designer Philippe Malouin. It was realized in 2018 for the Chinese furniture brand ZaoZuo, whose creative department is headed by Italian designer Luca Nichetto.
The Line Lamp is characterized in particular by its very minimalist design language. The lamp arm consists of a curved and thin frame, which is complemented by a solid base. This makes the luminaire a real eye-catcher in any room and radiates a special, simple elegance. Here, the principle of reduction to the essentials is emphasized without neglecting functionality – on the contrary:
The desk lamp has extensive functions for adjusting the illumination. The upper part of the frame can be rotated in both directions: 350° clockwise and anti-clockwise to extend the illumination area. The lamp arm can also be adjusted by 45° so that the light source can be brought closer to the table. This enables clearer illumination for fine work.
The Line Lamp is operated intuitively with a simple touch, which can be used to dim the brightness continuously. A practical detail is the USB port integrated into the base, which allows external devices to be charged while the lamp is switched on. The matt metal texture also emphasizes the simple aesthetics and value of the minimalist design. It is available in black and white.
Philippe Malouin designed the Line Lamp. Since completing his design studies in Eindhoven, Paris and Montreal, Malouin has not only founded his own design studio but has also been awarded various prizes, including Designer of the Year 2018 by Wallpaper* Magazine. His diverse portfolio ranges from tables and carpets to lamps and art objects.
The successful combination of functionality and design of the Line Lamp was recognized in 2021 with the Red Dot Award Product Design, one of the most internationally renowned prizes for outstanding product design.
