TOTEM FLOOR LIGHT by Palefire
Totem floor light, Palefire.
Both art piece and uplighter floor lamp, the Totem is the embodiment of the Palefire ethos to blur the historically distinct lines between design and art.
Inspired by the work of Brancusi and by Italian mid-century glass lamps, the Totem experiments with the effect of stacking and repeated shapes to make a dramatic, architectural column-like form.
Combining a decidedly maximalist approach with thoughtful and sustainable practices, Palefire brings an exuberant artistic sensibility to home design. Their focus on colour play and pictorial surfaces is inspired by historical design movements such as Arts & Crafts and the Omega workshops.
The moulded paper-pulp shade and base is hand-painted in a choice of three plain finishes. Paper pulp is a natural material with its own idiosyncrasies and imperfections. The highly tactile surface created by the pulp is an eco-friendly equivalent to ceramic or plaster.
The Totem floor light is manufactured in a family-run workshop in Barcelona, then assembled and hand-painted in the UK.
