Gingko’s Dragonfly Balance Light is both a table lamp and a kinetic sculpture

With a design that transcends mere functionality, Gingko’s Dragonfly Balance Light has a unique interactive quality that makes it absolutely irresistible. The dragonfly-shaped lamp sits precariously on a vertical platform and invites you to touch and play with it, making it both visually and physically appealing!

Created by UK-based Gingko Design, the Dragonfly Balance Light fits well into the company’s wheelhouse of exceptionally creative lighting products. Like all of their other lights, the Dragonfly Balance Light is constructed from wood and runs on LEDs. The light takes the form of a dragonfly, with the LED panels integrated into the underside of its 2 pairs of wings. The dragonfly’s body is crafted from laser-cut wood (maple or walnut), and a single power button on the back lets you turn the light on and toggle between its 4 brightness settings. Talking about the Dragonfly Balance Light, however, is incomplete without mentioning its fun balancing act!

Designed to be perfectly symmetrical, the shape of the lamp has a center of gravity located just at the end of the dragonfly’s head – a feature that allows it to balance itself casually on any surface. The Dragonfly Balance Light comes with its own wooden balancing platform (which elevates the lamp to a height to make it an efficient lighting fixture), although it can be balanced on just about any what a narrow object, from the corner of a table/shelf to even the tip of your finger! Once balanced, the light can be effectively “played” by pushing it, only to rock it back and forth before returning to its balanced position.

This practicality is really what makes the Dragonfly Balance lamp such a unique and enjoyable table accessory. It’s a lamp, but it’s more than just a lamp – it’s also the contemporary equivalent of a Newton’s cradle (those tabletop toys with swinging steel orbs). The Dragonfly Balance Lamp adds light and lightness to your table, inviting your hands to constantly play with it, while traditionally functioning as a dimmable light that effectively illuminates your table with a diffused luminous glow.

The fun and interactive illusion of the lamp is made possible by the fact that the Dragonfly Balance Light is completely wireless. A 650mAh Li-on rechargeable battery powers the light between 3 and 36 hours (depending on brightness setting), and a USB-C port on the back of the Dragonfly allows you to plug in your light to replenish the battery. Each Dragonfly Balance lamp is crafted from solid FSC certified natural maple or walnut wood and is packaged (along with the cylindrical stand) in a premium gift box.
