Unlike most lights, Empty Light encourages viewers to look directly into it. It features an empty concave shade coated in a soft wash of white that reflects an array of hidden LEDs. While the shade is concave, it gives the appearance of being a flat diffused surface, creating a surprising and beautiful optical illusion.
The overall design is simple with subtle, yet beautiful details, placing the emphasis on the interior of the shade and the lighting effect. The Empty Light range includes a table lamp, floor lamp, and pendant lamp; making it perfect for a wide range of settings.
