A modern take on lighting features a shade that sits on a sculptural tripod stand. The Felt Floor Light provides soft reflected illumination. The felt shade employs a technique known as fabric-forming, a process rarely used in lighting and furniture design. Felt is created by heat pressing a double layer of material which is then sculpted into shape.
