Wood and metal combine in a design that utilizes the beauty and simplicity of basic geometric shapes. The Scantling is based on a highly functional and flexible system, in which all the movements of the fully rotational shade use ball joints and arms to create a versatile, easy-to-move light. In addition, its technical precision requires no exposed springs or counterweights to stay in the specified position.

The word Scantling refers to a wooden strip that was formerly used as a unit of measurement, especially in shipbuilding. Its assembly is reminiscent of a construction set, and its profile evokes a silhouette of light, an archetypal, almost graphic design.

The Scantling collection includes a table, wall and two floor versions.
