The Matin Wall Lamp offers a contemporary yet poetic design, with a construction that combines visual delicacy with physical robustness. The head of the lamp can be angled approximately 45 degrees both upwards and downwards to create an ambient uplight as well as directional downlight. The wall-mounted design consists of a steel wire bent frame finished in polished brass with matte black hardware and is paired with a pleated cotton shade in two sizes with a variety of vibrant colours. The light source is an integrated LED, offering a diffused light which is accompanied by a digital in-line dimmer control to adjust the output of light if required.
