A Light Sculpture
Visually, the High Line is a light sculpture, a svelte line that gives off light without revealing its source. The new floor lamp by Josep Lluís Xuclà generates light indirectly by reflection, and uniquely, the light does not bounce off the ceiling, but off the wall. Its designer is interested in having the wall return the emitted light. A wall is this lamp’s greatest ally, and they want to remain close.
Formally, it’s a composition in volumes and colors. Three blocks that stand out for their shapes and tones: the vertical, light-carrying element in oak or wenge is attached to a block of lacquered wood. Both rise above the black base, which defines the optimal distance at which to place the lamp from the wall to generate an ideal light source. The austerity of its shapes contrasts with the warmth of its wood and the depth of its colors.
