We continue to share bold and eye-catching light sources, and today’s spotlight is Dawn to Dusk by Haberdashery.
The lamps, called Dawn to Dusk, each have a flat, disk-shaped light source that slides up and down on a central black stem mounted on a weighty triangular base. As the disk-shaped light source climbs up the stem, the color of the light changes from a low-intensity red tone through orange and warm white to a bright white light that is supposed to emulate the midday sun. The manually controlled light source is at the base of the stem in an off position.
The disc can also be rotated 360 degrees so that the lamp can be used as a forward facing work light. When turned towards the wall, it creates ambient light. The lamps are controlled by custom mechanical and electrical components that are built into the stand and head of the lamp. The only standard component used for the design is the wall-mounted driver.
It can also help support our circadian rhythms – a soft warm light can be used to wake up, a bright light can be used to focus, and the oranges and reds can be used to relax and fall asleep in the evening.
