With as many clients Gensler has each architect in the firm is provided with a Tizio Lamp designed by Richard Sapper. It is designed with two counterweights that allow the user to direct light wherever it is needed most. You just push or pull with the touch of your hand to guide the light where it is needed. Great for those late nights in the office, especially the night shit that make 24-7 hour service able.

Although the Candelabrum is designed to light a room as well as the Tizio lamp, the Candelabrum is a much more intricate gorgeous artifact. It was designed for beauty and light. In contrast to the Tizio where it is designed for practicality instead. The lava lamp is similar to the Tizio lamp being two lamps that have new uses and ideas for lighting. Lava lamps have colored liquid and melted wax that warms up and moves around because of the heat created by the lamp. Tizio lamp was one of the first lamps to have a counterweight system and a halogen light bulb.
