I’ve been living in Turin for three months and just before Christmas I set up the design workspace in the bedroom.
The bedroom is total white: a whitewashed barrel-vault, white walls, milk-colored headboard and wardrobe and white cotton sheets.
Waking up in the morning is great if you’re surrounded by nothing: it feels like waking up in cotton wool, your eyes adjust slowly to the light and you feel like you’re able to start a new day from scratch.
We live in an apartment and we both work from home, so it was necessary to create a small study area.
The desk is very small: we brought it here from our old house, where it stood at the entrance as a table top.
The computer, two or three sheets and there’s no room left on the desk. In short, there was the need not to occupy the floor with a table lamp, but I had to choose between a hanging lamp and a floor lamp. I chose a hanging lamp. It’s called blossom and it’s a origami metal lamp.
The light is wonderful. It seems a brilliant game of shadows on the wall.

The blossom lamp
Blossom, designed by engineer Janne Uusi-Autti, has arrived in a box 1 cm thick and slightly larger than an A4 sheet. It is made up like an origami, in a perfect joints game.
Blossom can be used both as a pendant lamp, and as a table lamp.
