YANG, floor lamp.

YANG, floor lamp, black

YANG

YANG floor lamp illuminates the room indirectly by means of reflecting light from the ceiling. The lighting is dimmable and can be adjusted to suit your mood. Adjust the luminance using the dimmer and set the ambiance with brilliant, glare-free light. Halogen lamps provide feel-good light that looks and acts like natural light.

YANG is available in black with a red illuminating tip at the base and in white with a blue illuminating tip at the base.

YANG, is in the National Museum of Scotland’s, Contemporary Design Collection and is a part of the National Archive of Scotland.

YANG, one of a collection of lights

designed in 1986.

The collection was manufactured by Bieffeplast and launched at Euroluce, Milan 1986.

I sketched YANG on a piece of paper during a quiet moment sitting on a chair in a corridor at their factory in Padova. I had been immersed in experimenting with light and designing lights for years prior to this. 

Bieffeplast commissioned me to develop a desk lamp from an idea I showed them a couple of months earlier. This was me back at the factory with my prototype of the desk lamp, Scorpion, they had commissioned and I had a few more ideas for designs for lights to show them — RED POINT and ECLIPSE, both suspended lamps and both were produced by Bieffeplast who launched them with YANG at Euroluce, Milan.

Fast forward 25 years to 2011

With our company Ventri Ltd, in collaboration with a manufacturer in the UK, we produced a limited edition of 25 YANG floor lamps to celebrate 25 years since the design was launched at Euroluce. While remaining true to the original design we upgraded the manufacture, quality of components and finish.

As well as the original YANG in black, we produced a YANG in white version with the tip at the base illuminating blue, that is absolutely stunning.

Each lamp is verified with a signed, numbered, Sterling Silver disc on the base. The disc has been hallmarked at the Edinburgh Assay Office and struck with the 925 Sterling Silver mark and +Metal as the silver attached to metal. The Makers Mark is GM – Gary Morga
