Pendant lamp

Salamp it is a pendant lamp with one light source made in modern style. Stainless steel is used for creating the main shape. The fastening parts (upper and lower panels) made of light wood, which has a distinct texture. Also can be made of veneer. The lower panel is stretched with linen fabric, which helps lighting become more warm and muted.
We were thinking a lot about the main lamp concept and the result which have to appear before start working on this project. It is very important to imaging how your product will be realized in the future. Where it will be hanging and with whom it will be connected. This way of creation helps organize thoughts truly and discard inappropriate ideas.
We wanted to invent a beautiful, wise, adult lamp. The main criteria for the future lamp were: simplicity, restraint, and purity. The main forming became cone and straight lines. We tried to combine these two links and to make silhouette massive and light at the same time. That is how the silhouette of taper caught on a stick,  appeared. We were inspired by Japanese architecture as well. For some people this wooden detail reminds barrette.
A lot of things related to this project. It very much reflects our team character. Therefore, when the design was finished our new important question became: what to call this lamp? When you look at the bottom of the lamp and add a little imagination, you can see the silhouette of the Planet. 

'Where «Sa» means Saturn.'

Lower wooden shield is visually very similar to the rings of Saturn, the sixth planet from the sun. The dark lamp housing is reminding a dark space. When we saw it, we immediately realized that we will bind the name of the lamp with Saturn. That is how Salamp was created... Where «Sa» - Saturn.
