Two shells are joined to form a borderline between dark and light, shade and diffusor. They’re bound by three velcro bands, leaving the shell edges free of metallic joints. When the lamp is on, the inner white shell diffuses a soft, comfortable light, while the indirect light emitted from the top gives the impression that the lamp is floating below the ceiling. The Borderline family of lamps includes floor, suspension and ceiling versions. As with the other lamps in the Borderline family, there is no need for a manual nor a screw driver for re-lamping. Simply remove the velcro strips.
