Australian designer Ross Gardam has unveiled the new Polar desk lamp at Ventura Lambrate during this year’s Milan Design Week. The Polar desk lamp can be described as a “Reflection of Light and Shadow”. A circular motif is used throughout Polar defining its minimal operative form. The product utilises a unique magnetically attached arm to allow the disc to rotate around the body directing or shading light. A friction disc in combination with magnets molded into the ceramic body allows the arm to snap into place and to function. Polar’s ceramic base is handcrafted using traditional slip casting and the surface is bisque fired and presented unglazed. The disk face is available in polar white, midnight blue and dusk pink as well as a gold mirror finish. “The gold mirror finish allows Polar to expand its functionality creating a lit place for reflection,” says Gardam.
