Tala's Echo table lamp catches the eye with its minimalist, fascinatingly unusual design conceived by New York-based designer David Weeks. The luminaire comprises asymmetrically intersecting metal cylinders with perfectly round light bulbs at their ends. Tala's own Sphere IV bulbs feature a frosted matte finish that filters the light softly and pleasantly, and their Dim to Warm technology assures a smooth transition from cool bright light to a warm, atmospherical glow – an effect similar to old incandescent bulbs.
Due to its distinctive, contemporary design, Davis Weeks' Echo is sure to leave a lasting impression in any space. “Asymmetry is achieved by working backwards, starting at the end. We decide where we want the bulbs to go and then solve the problem of getting them there. This way awkwardness always has a remedy; it gets reconciled along the way. The result is off-kilter but wholly balanced,” says the designer.
