asana. floor. lamp.
In yoga, Asana means posture, or seat. In Italy, Asana means weirdo chair, or weirdo lamp. At least the Asana made by Kundalini does.
To clarify, the 6.5' tall Asana is both a chair and a lamp. Either separately, or both at the same time. It stems from the Kundalini philosophy to create things that are not only beautiful but "also and above all extrasensorial signs. Beings that refer to other dimensions and bring into our ambience a different energy." I guess they mean, things that look like they'd be at home on top of a teletubby head. I'm just saying...
The main part of the Asana -- the part you can sit on if you like -- is made from a lacquered fiberglass attached to a stainless steel base. The lamp part is a "diffuser in Murano triplex blown glass." I'm not sure what that is either, but it looks cool.
The lamp part is bright because it's outfitted with a 250 watt halogen bulb. The fiberglass body is bright because it comes in colors like white, orange and red. There's also a black version that I guess isn't as bright, but that's still cool. No word on pricing or availability.
