Soft design: Fuse lamp by Note Design Studio

Italian brand Ex.t launched a floor-standing and table version of its “Fuse” pendant lamp. Created for Ex.t by Note Design Studio, the Fuse is a family of ceramic lighting that now includes a floor, table and pendant lamp.

Fuse makes use of a cylindrical ceramic shade that is mounted on a wooden stem and anchored by a plate-like base with a lipped edge that can double as a fruit bowl or as a tray for household objects. Fuse marries traditional Italian craftsmanship with Nordic simplicity. The tactility of the ceramic and wood design, coupled with the glow created within each cylindrical shade, makes for a soft design.

The new floor and table versions are available in the neutral colors of Ex.t’s “Gravel” and “Roof” collections.
