Jinn is a floor and table lamp, based on the idea to create a reinterpretation of a classic decorative lamp comprising a base and lamp shade. In opposition to the traditional build of a central structure holding the shade and light source in place, Jinn is deconstructing this typology by removing the stem. The metal shade is supported by a glass piece that is mounted on top of the base. The light source itself is located in the base so that the light is reflected from the lamp shade and emits through the glass. Being reminiscent of oil or gas lamps the control for dimming and switching is positioned on the base of the lamp. Using the wheel on the side, the intensity of light can be adjusted in a very intuitive manner.
