The delicious color options make it hard to resist these luminaires – you almost gotta catch them all!

The Bilboquet table lamp consists of a steel ball connecting a cylindrical leg and shade.

In all its simplicity, the Bilboquet table lamp consists of two colourful cylinders connected by a magnetic ball acting as a joint. The shade rotates around the joint, allowing the light to be directed precisely where you want and need it most.

Bilboquet serves as a spotlight, a reading lamp, or simply as a decorative object on its own.

Designer Philippe Malouin describes Bilboquet as "a luminaire for millennials and Generation Z", with a versatile nature that adapts to the new way of thinking about the home today. The delightful luminaire flexibly fits different spaces and situations: use it in the home office, living room, or studio as a spotlight.

In addition to versatility, Bilboquet also emphasizes eco-friendliness: the lamp is assembled without glued parts and can be completely dismantled for recycling.

By the way, this clever lamp gets its name from the bilboquet game invented in France in the 1500s. The rules are quite simple: a ball attached to the end of a wooden stick is thrown into the air and then tried to be caught back in its place. Design Stories' editorial team doesn't recommend trying the same trick with the Bilboquet lamp, but otherwise, we recommend giving the game a try—a great activity for a summer day!
