Pole is a table and floor light that challenges the common perception that light travels in a straight line. It provides ambient light as well as a dimmable, focussed and directional beam. Using a minimum of materials and components, it is strikingly simple and yet makes an intriguing addition to a domestic setting.
Light travels from a light source embedded deep within a concrete base and up through an optical grade, precisely curved, transparent acrylic rod and eventually culminates in a bright beam appearing at more than a metre from its source.
Paul Cocksedge: 'I wanted to create the illusion of bending light on an everyday scale. In order to achieve this I needed to send rays of light on a journey of internal reflection'.
