The Donkey in the System
by Thomas Wagner | 4/20/2016
Fork is an ironic lamp inspired by the casual world of the campsite and campers. The canvas shade has typical tent stitching, with deliberately visible fabric layers. The metal structure of the base is joined to the diffuser by two metal rings reminiscent of those used to fix tents and the warm, suffused light is typical of tents lit from the inside. What recalls the roots of Diesel style - jeans - are the quality of the fabric and the type of workmanship.
Fork is a real furnishing element. The base is in dark metal, while the diffuser is available in two colours: rope, for a very natural effect, and black. The light is soft and direct, creating a warm, luminous effect, meaning that the lamp fits perfectly in a relaxation area.
Fork is available in floor and table versions. The latter has been designed to be extremely flexible and to act as a desk or table light. The diffuser can be orientated as you wish thanks to the two rings of the lampshade, which have a special high tech device that allows complete rotation around the axis of the bulb.
