Menu Bollard Light
When we first laid eyes on the Menu Bollard Light at the Stockholm Furniture Fair, we were quickly intrigued by its simple yet functional form and knew it was an immediate must-have for our online collection.
Thanks to its slotted circular base, the Menu Bollard Light is as versatile as they come. The thin slot allows for the electric cable to be switched into different positions, meaning that the light can be used in a variety of different ways. Whether you wish to suspend it from the ceiling, tilt it into a spotlight, lay it on its side or position it upright, the possibilities are endless. The light is also wrapped in a soft silicone skin, which makes it lightweight and flexible.
Such a cleverly executed design wouldn’t be complete without the choice of a beautiful selection of colours. American designer Shane Schneck opted for earthy contemporary tones, from dusty pale green, nude and ash to industrial carbon grey and black.
Shane Schneck founded the Office for Design in 2010, with the intent of only designing for those who admire, support and implement simplicity and innovation. With a strong background in architecture, Shane developed a multidisciplinary approach which has allowed him to bring great innovation into his work from a multitude of sources. This type of intelligent thinking led him to win the 2014 Wallpaper Design Award for the Hay Strike Matchbox, amongst other successes.
The Menu Bollard Light was launched at the northmodern trade fair in January and has since received a significant amount of attention from the press and media. Perfectly formed and carefully considered, this clever little piece of design is both sophisticated and playful and that’s what we love about it.
