Entry Description
The floor lamp “Shamash” consists of three parts: a dome, a metal stand and a stone base. The head of the lamp consists of an integrated glass dome, which from the inside reaches a ceramic arched form that is connected to the glass shell with three pins. The arch is a mirror inside and out. The metal base is a tubular structure that rests on a stone cylinder from below, and is attached to the arch from above and acts as a support for the dome. In the middle of the metal base, two cylinders with a light source in them shoot light into the arch at a concentrated angle. The result of this reflection on ground is the formation of a geometric form of light that is a symbol of the Sun. Shamash is the ancient name of the Sun goddess in Mesopotamian civilization.
