Design by Form Us With Love, 2013.By Fontana Arte.
While its shape recalls the classic electric torch, Yupik's function is decidedly more wide-ranging and versatile. The Yupik Table Lamp is made from polypropylene foam, a sturdy, resistant, yet very lightweight material. It consists of close-cell beads that incorporate a lot of air and therefore weigh less in proportion to their volume. These characteristics mean it is used as a transport and protecting material. The clear polycarbonate diffuser, in concentric circles, recalls the typical diffusers on car headlights. Given the important characteristics of the material used, the designers decided on a very basic shape which as a whole highlights its function as a portable lamp.
Yupik ships with 196.9" of cable. It can be placed on a table positioned with the light source pointing up or laid on one side to illuminate a wall. It can even be hung up, thanks to a hook around which the cable can be twisted to form a loop.

Architect Gio Ponti founded FontanaArte in 1932 as an artistic division of the Luigi Fontana Company. Historically, the company has been a leader in advanced glass manufacturing and design. The company's works were first distinguished by its realization of artistic stained-glass windows, many of which are today still functional elements and ornamental features of churches and cathedrals, among them the Duomo of Milan and the Cathedral of Brasilia. By using glass, Ponti realized what an enormous potential this material could offer in the in the making of furnishing complements for interiors, and he started to design and produce furniture, lamps and objects with glass as the main distinguishing feature. Soon a new collection was ready to be marketed, and his new design concept was being used as a complement to the interior decoration of many houses that he personally designed. Over the years, FontanaArte has had many contributors to its designs, including Pietro Chiesa, Gae Aulenti, Pierluigi Cerri, Piero Castiglioni, Vico Magistretti, Vittorio Gregotti, Ettore Sottsass, Umberto Riva, Alvaro Siza and Renzo Piano.
