arc table lamp

A nicely shaped lamp for home or office…interesting enough to completely warrant the price tag.

“An arc of chromed steel elegantly elevates the large, luminous white linen shade for clean, modern lighting. To softly diffuse the light, the oversized 19″-diameter shade is enclosed with a sheer layer of linen across the top. The effect is quite stunning in a living room, bedroom or office. Shade height is 7″. Uses one 60-watt bulb, not included.”

Light Reading by Sam Johnson

British designer Sam Johnson has an ingenius way of lighting your booksshelves in a very integrated way.

“Light Reading was designed to nestle in amongst your books and remain invisible until illuminated. Made from a material called ‘Secret sign’ (by Perspex), the light is bent into the shape of a book. Inside the book a low energy lamp is mounted providing a safe and low temperature light source. When switched off it blends in with the other books with its matt black spine. Once illuminated the light reveals its title, which is laser engraved on the inside.

Includes cable, switch and plug.”

Wet Lamp

An expletive would be apt to describe my total shock and pleasure upon finding this lamp.

“The WET Lamp is an elegant and playful series of glass lamps with an alluring water-submerged light bulb at its center. Putting an exposed light bulb in water certainly raises some eyebrows, but it also creates an intriguingly simple dimmer switch. When a thin silver rod is slid into the water, the WET Lamp turns on and becomes progressively brighter as the rod is submerged.
Despite its precarious concept, the Wet lamp is a completely safe and isolated system of low voltage power.”

Hand blown borosilicate glass, silicone gaskets, silver electrode and contact, 10W Xenon bulb with gold plug.

Small Clear: 4″H x 4″W, $199.00
Small Frosted: 4″H x 4″W, $219.00

Fat Lamp

Hmm, though this is slightly disturbing, it’s also oddly fascinating. It definitely gets points for originality…

“Droog’s 12th presentation in Milan at the Salone del Mobile 2004 was based on the concept of going slow. When the Fat Lamp is turned on, it slowly melts and gives more light. This process takes about 2 hours. When turned off it becomes solid again. The lamp consists out of soy oil and melts by a small light-bulb that hangs directly in the oil, because soy isn’t conductive. “

Classic One Table Lamp

This lamp is made from one piece of handblown glass- which makes the pricetag completely understandable. Such a lovely lamp…

“Designed by Maria Berntsen for Holmegaard, the glass division of Royal Scandinavia. This lamp has become an instant classic with its distinctive timeless features. Very simple, but stylish and genius. It is made from a single piece of handblown glass! This beautiful masterpiece of light will perfectly fit any interior.

Pablo Tube Top table lamps

If you like the looks of this lamp, you have a chance to preorder now so that you can have it as soon as humanly possible. Awfully tempting, isn’t it? The 27″ one in white shade/clear base is particularly provocative.

“A minimalist statement in form and proportion. Tube Top combines a transparent formed acrylic base to support its elegant mesh fabric shade in tension, steering away from conventional modes of construction. Its lightweight shade appears to float freely, gently tethered by its fabric cord.”

available in: white shade/charcoal base, charcoal shade/charcoal base,
white shade/clear base (27″ only)

Dolio Table Lamp

Sometimes when “mirrored” and “chrome” are adjectives used to decribe an object, cringes are seen or felt (not for me, of course, because I’m partial to that type of thing). This particular lamp are both of these things, yet remain elegant, truly embodying perhaps the best elements of “distincive” designs of the 60’s and 70’s…

Mirror (Chrome) & Semi-Transparent Frosted (Acrylic)

Sometimes product pictures are kinda funny, especially when a model is involved. The light is pretty neat, though…

Lytegem Lamp

I’ve long had a love affair with this little lamp. Designed in 1965 by Michael Lax, it remains a classic due to it’s simple design and localized light especially fitted for tableside/bedside reading. It’s available now in a limited commemorative edition from Lightolier.

“The telescoping neck adjusts from 6.5” to 15” and the lamp head swivels 360°. Light intensity can be changed from low to high using a switch located on the base. The heavy cube base anchors the design, and can be wall mounted for multi-directional sconce lighting.”

Eclipse Lamp

Quite an interesting-looking lamp…

“Brazilian Maurício Klabin designed the Eclipse Lamp in 1982 as part of a series of objects he called “cocoons,” due to their rounded form, internal volumes and capacity to change. With the same kind of coiled delicacy you find in a soft-shelled nautilus, the Eclipse is a model of simplicity and ingenuity. Fabricated from a single strip of polypropylene attached to a steel frame, the Eclipse can be opened or closed to varying degrees. This allows the shape of the fixture to be altered to expand or reduce the amount of direct light or change the angle of illumination.”

Steel base; translucent polypropylene diffuser; black cord.

H 10.5″ D 13.5″ Cord L 67″
