Concept

Minimalist design was the driving force for designer Cecilie Manz in her development of the lamp series, Mondrian. This is why the lamp can appear as a line in the air, and break the conventional assumption of how a lamp should look. Mondrian is created with halogens bulbs, which has allowed greater freedom in design and a stylishly simple look.

Mondrian is constructed of steel bar and pipe, and moulded parts. To prevent glare, the lamp housing is moulded with a collar around the light source. The translucent ring in moulded acrylic insulates the heat from the outermost section of the lamp head. The ring lights up when the lamp is on, and indicates how to adjust the light. Mondrian’s light can be directed 180 degrees horizontally and 335 degrees vertically.

Mondrian lamps provide a direct, adjustable light. The lamp housing has a reflector that deflects heat and increases luminosity. This effect is further enhanced by using halogen bulbs with built-in reflectors.

Cecilie Manz’s universe revolves around her love of great paintings, and the names of her lamps are a tribute to her personal favourites. This lamp is named after the Dutch painter Piet Mondrian.
