Created from a prototype from the 1960s and put into production after half a century, the Gravity table lamp consists of a couple of spheres; one made of glass and a metal “satellite” that can be moved in any direction. The metal satellite is cut through its lower section and the cut part is located inside the glass sphere. The two parts are held together by magnets and adhere perfectly to the curve of the glass surface. In this way the metal satellite can slide and rotate freely without constraints on the curved surface of the glass sphere thus changing the direction of the light beam and visually appearing to be almost suspended. The two spheres seem to be two different light sources; since they can be turned on independently, they also generate two different types of light: the glass sphere produces a diffused light while the metal ball creates a directed light.
