The floor lamp Fliegenbein gets its name from its base, which resembles the legs of a housefly. This freestanding armature comprises two bent metal tubes that merge into a single shaft; a silken shade is suspended near the top of the dark, matte-finished column. The pleated shade injects volume and texture into the composition, as the base itself possesses a visual light¬weightness and geometric elegance belying its strength. The pairing of contrasts makes Fliegen¬bein a complement to any modern living environment. Features Kalmar Werkstätten's signature wheat-colored electrical cord merges seamlessly into one of Fliegenbein legs.
