The dark asymmetric lamp-base is made up of carefully considered geometric forms. This is contrasted with a lightweight cylindrical shade. The base is a pedestal for the sculptural light source above. The carefully considered forms are reminiscent of the nuances in architectural space. True perspective of space is nearly always asymmetric. The base reflects this concept; different forms and shapes appear as you view the lamp-base from different angles, contrasted with the cylindrical lampshade, as it appears constant, striking a balance between the two volumes. Its base can be turned to provide different silhouettes and configurations of form. Tower Floor Lamp can be used in a variation of spaces due to its muted tones, clean lines and contemporary design.

The oak base is handmade from solid English oak with an iron oxide finish; this is where iron reacts with the tannin in the oak to create a blue\black tone naturally formed from the oak itself. A polished brass neck leads to a tall cylindrical lampshade made from Japanese washi paper. The paper is fibrous and textured with gold and silver flecks. LED ribbons on the inside provide a diffused consistent glow that is controlled by a brass rotary dimmer switch located beneath the shade.
