Gravity-Defying Lamp from Designer Victor Castanera

Barcelona-based designer Victor Castanera describes his work as “objects and products that speak for themselves and try to do it in the simplest possible way.” In line with this ethos, the Balancing Lamp, created for Swedish maker Oblure, relies on basic forms to create a playful and striking light. Hand-blown glass orbs seemingly defy gravity, balanced on steel shelves and paused in position. “Stuck in time, a reminder that life is movement no matter what,” Castanera elevates the basic lamp, creating sculptures both useful and beautiful.
