Studioilse desk lamp

This lamp combines materials in a thoughtful, functional design that’s somehow new and vintage at the same time. I absolutely love it.
Update: Apologies, I didn’t catch that it’s available for preorder from DWR…thanks LYD.
“We have chosen honest materials that carry clear messages,” says Ilse Crawford, designer of the w084t Lamp (2008). “Iron for its feelings of stability, reliability and trust; wood with its warmth and life; and a glass, chalk and plastic blend for its intimate glow and tactility.” Even the fabric-covered cord was chosen for its familiarity, and along the stem, it remains visible by following a groove in the wood. It would be an understatement to say there is nothing slick about this lamp, and that’s exactly the point. A hands-on experience, the lamp swivels on a cast iron base that grinds a bit as the two plates slide against each other, and the arms are adjusted by turning wing nuts. The light source, however, is a new generation of low-heat halogen, which is energy efficient and dimmable.
