We end this series of Objects of Design with this beautiful task lamp which does, as they say, tick all my boxes. The mix of brass, wood and a chunky clamp makes it a real piece of industrial glamour.
It is available from one of my favourite stores Uniche Interior Furnishings, but, more than that, it was designed by Laura Lane, co-owner of the store so it’s exclusive to them and, I’m guessing, reasonably limited edition.
She told me it was originally designed for a Ted Baker instore project and they decided to put them into production.
The only thing stopping me from buying it this instant is the small matter of not having a desk to clamp it to as I tend to work from the kitchen table. On the other hand, I may just buy it anyway ready for when I have found something to fix it too. The mix of materials is just too lush for me pass up.
What do you think?
UPDATE: I so am buying one. I’ll find somewhere to clamp it. I’ll add a picture when it arrives.
