Piuma is a luminaire that makes the act of balance tangible. The design embodies a physical mechanism in an increasingly digital world. Like a feather, the luminaire floats in space and its dualistic form creates a tension between expected weight and size. Shifting the weight creates strong angles or a stable horizontal. The ultra-light shade rotates on its own axis and directs the light omnidirectionally.
