Wall Light

This is another piece from the Plastic-Fantastic collection, in which you can select the color of the Soft Skin rubber coating.

“The focus of the collection has been vintage and restored pieces in a baroque style the forms of which become somewhat homogenized with the unification of a single color.”

Technic Wall/Ceiling Lamp

This perfect spotlight would work well to illuminate a task area. Also, the price is right and the quality is high.

*Reader Update*:

A reader just purchased 8 of these and said that “the product shot is a bit deceiving. It looks like the light mounts flush to the wall when in fact the back plate will stick out almost an inch from the wall unless you do a lot of extra work to recess the unit into the wall. But they’re still really nice.”
