Stewie introduces a new kind of light. A floor lamp whose illumination, which emanates from below but also radiates upward, puts the objects it illuminates “in a new light”. Stewie can also be faced toward the wall in order to create a softer, more diffused light. The polymeric foam employed to make the lamp was carefully selected for specific characteristics, namely its lightness, its permeability to light, and its ability to be paired with fabric. Stewie is thus a shell whose light source is housed within a textile filling that filters the illumination.
