The Demetra Wall Sconce, designed by Naoto Fukasawa, is aptly named after Demetra, the Greek goddess of harvest, both for its striking beauty and ability to “harvest a creative work environment”. A minimally styled task lamp, the painted aluminum body is composed of a fully adjustable arm and head, allowing the user to achieve the perfect angle of light.
