Polar Desk Lamp by Ross Gardam
Melbourne-based designer Ross Gardam showcased a new collection of lamps at the Ventura / Lambrate design district at the recent Milan design week. We were immediately drawn by the super sleek shapes and finishes, a sculptural take on the circular motif which reminds us of the Cirkel wall light by Daphna Laurens, the Elastic lights of Marta Bordes and the Superloon floor light by Jasper Morrison.
The ceramic base of the light directs the beam gently to the circular disc, which is attached to the base with a clever magnetic arm. The face of the disc is available in multiple colours including a spectacular gold mirror finish. Minimalist and sculptural at the same time, the Polar desk lamp makes a great mood light for contemporary design schemes.

Furniture with simple, slick shapes are great companions for sculptural lighting. The Meduse dining table from Casamania and the Supernatural chair from Moroso would both look great with the Polar desk lamp.
Team the Polar desk lamp with the Cosmic collection of planetary plates and table accessories from Diesel Living for maximum visual impact.

The elegant and minimalist furniture by Belgian designer Casimir is not only beautiful: by stripping his designs to their core, the designer often reveals thought-provoking questions and also a hint of subversion.
A cool space often looks best in a calm, orderly interior design scheme. A good example is this sleek villa on the outskirts of Kiev, designed by architect Denis Rakaev, which uses a restrained colour palette and carefully selected design elements.
