Object of Desire: A Gauzy Outdoor Floor Lamp from Barcelona

June 23, 2017

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:

New this year, the Jaima outdoor floor lamp has a shade made of textilene, a PVC-coated polyester mesh designed to limit heat transfer. For prices and more information, see Marset.

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.

The Jaima outdoor standing lamp can be customized with two styles of  rotating stand. The lamp also can be configured as a wall sconce or pendant light.

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.
