A two-headed lamp, battling the forces of darkness.
We have loved Porta Romana’s work for a long time, and used their pieces in many interiors. The Porta Romana studio achieves wonderful specialist finishes on its products. We admire the ingenious original ideas in each year’s new collection and look forward with excitement to see new products revealed.
This double-sided table lamp is simple and functional, with no superfluous decoration or ornament. It adds interest to a dark corner, casting symmetrical, opposing pools of warm light in both directions.
The shape could be interpreted as back-to-back bowed heads but Porta Romana informs us that the name ‘MOTU’ is, rather amusingly, an acronym for ‘Masters of the Universe’. Knowing this, we can definitely now see a He-Man in the shape of the lamp.
