Archetype: Lampshade or Shadelamp?
April 21st, 2010
Designed by Goodmorning Technology for Milan-based lighting store Luceplan, the Archetype lamp combines the classic shape of a traditional lamp shade with modern LED technology, resulting in a device that is as familiar and approachable as the lamps we’re used to, but is far more efficient and longer-lasting.
The Archetype has an aluminum exterior and a polycarbonate diffuser, with the LED cleverly hidden inside, which means that the shade is the lamp itself.
For me the best thing about the Archetype is that it’s compatible with traditional-sized bulb holders, making it versatile and easy to use.
