Control table lamp by Muuto
Stockholm-based TAF architects is the product design studio behind the playful table lamp called Control for Muuto. A lamp with a unique appearance because of the references to old hi-fi and industrial machinery.
It’s a simple, yet clever design. The big bulb is dimmable by a switch with a volume control that reminds me of my old hi-fi music set from the 80’s. During the design process TAF architects was inspired by the idea of displaying different lamp components on a serving plate.
The look and feel resembling a still life which easily blends in its environment. Lamps are often beautiful, but it’s is difficult to find exact the right amount of light and brightness. The built in dimmer is a big advantage. This way I can adapt the light with a quick touch. Whether I’m reading, working or relaxing.
Control is made of aluminum in several colors, from black, rusty red to clean white. I choose the light-grey version which suits my monochrome home. The big E27 bulb is a statement on the sophisticated base. Muuto knows how to combine this iconic classic bulb with a new modern design.
Salone del Mobile
Just got back from my visit to Milan for the annual Salone del Mobile, my fourth in a row. It’s always a pleasure to wander the streets of this green Italian city. This year was the first time I also visited the fair. Muuto presented their collection in a very inspiring way. And of course, table lamp Control was present. But not only at the interior design fair, I also spotted this lamp in several stores. A timeless design that fits any interior style!
