In designing Circa, the designers at Pablo Studio wanted to create a product that was both revolutionary and familiar. They not only created a new lamp, but also a new archetype of interior lighting, blurring the line between the utilitarian work lamp and the traditional shade lamp.
The main feature of Circa is a flat LED disc that moves fluidly over its axis. This mobility allows the lamp to take on an infinite number of positions while functioning as a task lamp that provides balanced ambient light. Circa is available as a table, floor or pendant lamp.
Pablo Designs was founded in San Francisco in 1993 by Venezuelan-born industrial designer Pablo Pardo. Embracing a "less is more" ideology, Pablo often challenges traditional design metaphors, developing more practical solutions, reduced to their essence, form and light. A common thread connects all his creations, valuing permanence and sustainability, and rejecting the disposable spirit so prevalent today.
