Designer Botta believes that a lamp needs to create an atmosphere as well as supply light while at the same time produce shadows creating a natural contrast. With this in mind Botta developed the Shogun series of lamps to look beautiful when turned on producing a fantastic play with light and shadows but also made sure that the lamp itself maintained beauty when it was not in use. 


"They have to keep us company, and maintain their allure even when they are not giving off any light. I do not think a lamp should vanish. It is an object that creates light when there is none, so it has to be a visible artefact with a function, an image. That's why I started designing lamps which are people. Shogun is a person. He has a head, body and feet, plus a navel" - Mario Botta


Mario Botta's use of radically simplified and reduced geometric forms as well as his insistence on rationality and functionality in his designs reveals a close affinity with the Bauhaus and Modernist traditions.
