Lighting with Soul: Amy Floor Lamp by Delightfull

Portuguese lighting company Delightfull bases much of its collection on musical greats from the 1930s, 40s, and 50s. Their Wisdom Collection is inspired by Soul and Jazz and "the legacy of men who craft with their own hands." But Delightfull isn't stuck in the past century exactly, as their new Amy Floor Lamp illustrates. A tribute to "the great British singer and songwriter," Amy is unusual, sculptural, and surprising.

Dramatic Lamp Inspired by British Songstress

Made of RAL Lacquered color and chrome or gold plated, the Amy Floor Lamp has an interesting silhouette. Given the dramatic slope, the lamp's head puts me in mind of the famous bust of Nefertiti from the Ägyptisches Museum Collection in Berlin. It also resembles Amy Winehouse's signature beehive hairstyle. With either allusion, the floor lamp's luscious materials and dramatic black and gold colors call to mind a woman of intrigue.

Lighting with Soul: Amy Floor Lamp by Delightfull

Amy Floor Lamp works as a reading lamp, "perfect to enjoy with your favorite book." It is height adjustable and its forward tilt serves to illuminate the pages of your favorite volume (or perhaps to spotlight sheet music or CD liner notes).  The unique base, composed of a tilted triangle (which looks like the instrument of the same name) and curvy serif, balances out the substantial top of the floor lamp. It also echoes the graduated shape of the lamp head. The Amy Floor Lamp is as enigmatic and dark as the woman it is based on-which is reason enough to adopt and cherish it.

About the Manufacturer: Delightfull offers unique lighting that "reflects a personality, a frame of mind, and strong emotions." A Portuguese company headquartered in Rio Tinto, Delightfull seeks to produce lighting that evokes emotions: "Our pieces not only illuminate interiors they also add strong design presence to a space with their unique forms." The company's collection includes table and floor lamps, as well as suspension and wall lamps.
