Dating back to 1982, but with more than a hint of the 1950s is the Eclipse lamp by Mauricio Klabin.

The Eclipse was part of a series of objects described as ‘cocoons’ due to their rounded form, internal volumes and capacity to change, this particular one being picked out for the permanent collection of MoMA’s Department of Architecture and Design.

It’s fabricated from a single strip of polypropylene attached to a steel frame, allowing the lamp to be opened or closed to varying degrees – which means the shape of the fixture can be altered to expand or reduce the amount of direct light or change the angle of illumination. Available again from Bodie & Fou from March onwards, it retails for £72.
