Simple mechanism: Umleiter suspension lamp by Veronika Gombert

Introducing the “Umleiter” (meaning “diverter” in German), a flexible suspension lamp designed by Veronika Gombert that uses a simple mechanism to adjust the direction of its light. The lamp’s cord is channeled through an aluminum rod and is held in place by the sliding friction created by the weight of the hanging metal lamp shade. The lamp can be turned 360 degrees and can therefore be positioned anywhere within the rod’s 1m radius reaching distance. The lamp’s drop and distance can be preset. Umleiter is available in three different colors – black, gold and red.

Veronika Gombert is a German industrial designer. She studied at the Academy of Art and Design, HGK, FHNW in Switzerland and worked over the last years for Vitra (Birsfelden), Jasper Morrison (Paris/London) and BarberOsgerby (London). In 2013, she set up her own practice.
