Toy-Inspired Lamp Design with a Devilish Twist

Diabolo Lamp: A Masterful Fusion of Art and Design Inspired by the Ancient Devil Juggling Toy

The Diabolo Lamp, a collection of ceiling lamps designed by Light designers Hiroki Hakamada of Japanese company Studio Rowa, is a stunning fusion of art and design. The inspiration behind this unique lamp collection comes from the ancient oriental toy known as the Devil, a juggling device that rotates, whirls, is thrown into the air, and caught again with a rope attached to the tips of two sticks.

Similar to this impressive toy, the Diabolo Lamp is constructed using materials such as brass for the diffuser and artificial leather for the belt. Each element in this lamp collection is carefully and exclusively made and assembled by hand. The flying part of the diabolo lamp consists of two concave elements connected to each other, which are created using similar motions as the juggling device.

This beautiful fusion of art and design celebrates an ancient skillful activity that has been passed down through generations. Whether used as a centerpiece in your home or as a unique addition to your decor, the Diabolo Lamp is sure to impress all who see it.
