Muuto Beam: An award winner


David Village Lighting are always keen to stay up to date with the latest designs worthy of accolade.  Here we explore the inspiration behind one such design by one of our Scandinavian brands, Muuto.


Muuto Beam


Beam Table Lamp was designed by Tom Chung for Danish brand, Muuto in 2018. Chung’s Beam lamp offers a new perspective on modern lighting and is now a winner of the Wallpaper Design Award 2019, for ‘Best Finishing Touch’.


Fashioned after a traditional car head lamp, Beam is a clever design with intuitive user friendliness. The inspiration came to the designer, Tom Chung, while he was renovating his childhood home. Chung realised he needed a product which did not exist: a lamp that emits light from each opposing end of its body. This would allow the user to illuminate spaces more effectively without the need for more lamps.


It was imperative to Chung that the lamp was completely versatile. Both of the light sources in the Beam lamp work independently from each other; they can be dimmed up/down and one or both lights can be used simultaneously. The dimming functions allow the light to be used for tasks, setting ambience or just general lighting. The body can also be rotated to achieve illumination exactly where it’s needed. All this just from one small lamp! David Village Lighting values clever and inspirational designs such as these, created with a user focus and stylish aesthetic.


About the designer:


Tom Chung is an up-and-coming designer who established his Toronto based studio in 2016. Chung has a background in industrial design; his contemporary works reflect this style and incorporates useful functionalities suited for domestic environments.
