Evoking “the Bedouin tents of North Africa, and inspired by their varied fabrics and forms,” Barcelona-based designer Joan Gaspar’s new Jaima outdoor floor lamp “sifts the light as readily as it moves with the wind.” And it’s impervious to weather:
The lampshade is available in three sizes and four colors, “with a blank interior to optimize the quality of the downward light,” notes manufacturer Marset.
For industrial designer Gaspar, who learned his craft in a lamp workshop in Barcelona’s Poble Nou neighborhood in the 1980s, simplicity is key. “Objects have to be in a place without making noise, without clamoring for attention,” he says.
