Doride lamp by Karim Rashid

Designer Karim Rashid has designed a lamp inspired by a leaf blowing in the wind for Italian brand Artemide,

The lamp is composed of an articulated, hydro-formed, metal stem attached to a moulded-steel base that houses the electronic ballast.

The head of the lamp is able to rotate through 350 degrees and is equipped with thermoplastic louvers, resembling leaf veins, to minimise glare from the light source.

Here are some words from Karim Rashid:

I designed this concept when I was in university at the age of 19 so to see DORIDE finally realized is a dream come true thirty years later. I envisioned a leaf blowing in the wind, moving in nature, articulating at a point in the spine, with a thin articulating curvilinear branch that can rotate seamlessly 350 degrees. The slim narrow form morphs from direct to indirect light seamlessly. The leaf is a stroke of a pen, a soft vertical wave in flux, a fluid gesture that changes to vary light – a zoomorphic form that I would describe as digital nature.

The lamp is composed by a hydro-formed metal tube. Diffuser equipped with a light–shade antiglare louver made of thermo-plastic material. The base, made of molded steel, contain the electronic ballast. An articulation along the vertical development enables the lamp to rotate around 350°, in order to adjust the light emission (direct and indirect) and assuming different positions. Features a button switch along the stem for dimming the light
