The Humanscale Symtra Light uses optical waveguide technology on its inner panels to give you a warm, glare-free light over a broad surface. Modern LED technology has seemingly rendered the traditional lampshade unnecessary, but Humanscale has sought to reverse this thinking with this marriage of iconic form and technological function. Envisioned in conjunction with designer Peter Stathis, the Humanscale Symtra Light is a modern, inspired interpretation of the archetypal lampshade form.
Humanscale designed the Humanscale Symtra Light in partnership with designer Peter Stathis, former director of the graduate 3D Design Department at Cranbrook Academy of Art. Stathis describes the Symtra as "a contemporary light that merges poetics with technology, symbolism with function and aesthetics with ideology in creating a new image for a long traditional lighting icon."
