Apex Table Lamp


Brand : Hay

Designer : John Tree


Taking cues from the classic Banker’s Light, British designer John Tree merged archetypal references with his contemporary, colourful sensibility to create the Apex Table Lamp. The folded steel shades create a peaked roofline silhouette, providing the inspiration behind the lamp’s name as well as offering a graphic contrast to the chrome-plated bases. The round base and angled arm are complemented by a colourful shade that can rotate 360 degrees, allowing users to direct light to suit their needs.

The Apex Table Lamp offers a functional lighting solution for a multitude of spaces and uses, from a task light on a desk to a reading lamp on a bedside cabinet.

Size: H38, w16 x L19cm. Cord 200cm.

Fitting type: E14 (EU)  Power range: 5-8W (Max. 8W)

Suggested colour temperature: Warm White.

HAY was founded in 2002. This marked the beginnings of the international ambition that HAY has pursued over the past decade: creating durable quality furniture at affordable prices to allow as many people as possible to enjoy excellent design. HAY looks back with pride at the age of Danish Modern, where quality, craftsmanship and humanistic design put Denmark on the global map, and they look with excitement to the future as they explore the current possibilities inherent in new technologies, new materials and new ways of living with furniture. At the heart of everything that HAY does is the notion that contemporary design should spring from a good idea, innovative technology and quality materials in combination with joyful, straightforward and uncomplicated aesthetics.
