The hunt for the perfect spare room light has been going on for some time now. It’s a huge room with a high ceiling that has to work as an office, guest room and place for the children to hang out and play x-box and television.
I think this may be it. At the moment there’s a big white paper lampshade. You know the sort of thing. They’re lovely and minimal in one sense and a bit, well, meh in the other. Also, for people of my generation are they are, inextricably, student. Again, nothing wrong with that per se. Except I’m not.
And then I saw this. It’s such an elegant hat and the cable comes in various different colours (and is cord which I like) and I fell rather in love. It was designed by Korean born Mars Hwasung Yoo who now runs his studio BYMARS in Stockholm.
I don’t know if I shall ever actually buy one but I would like to think that with a bright pink cable it would look rather fetching, in a minimal sort of way, in that room.
In addition to the hat lamp he has also made a cap lamp desk light. It’s less elegant but then a baseball cap is never going to rival a hat is it?
