AXIS MUNDI Floor Light by OCHRE
Part of the Within4Walls Collection since 2006
Axis Mundi - the connection between Heaven and Earth. A symbolic thread which allows spiritual communication between heaven, earth and underworld, commonly represented as a rope or a tree, a vine, ladder or a staff.
With a nostalgic touch of the 1940's, the symbol has been embedded in this beautifully designed floor light. The lampshade is a delicate shape of finely pleated silk and finds a perfect counter balance in the understated, highly polished metal base. The transparent glass rod subtly reflects and magnifies its surroundings and forms an almost ethereal connection between earthly base and heavenly light source. The twisted silk flex hangs outside the glass rod and the light is operated by foot switch.
This very serene and evocative light design, handmade in Britain to the highest standards, is also available as a TABLE light.
