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—and that is precisely what stands out the most about the wall version, the small wooden handle that allows for easy control of the shade position.

The Scantling collection also includes two floor versions and one table version.
