Objects Of Design #266: Science Light

Steuart Padwick science light

Inspired by those stands in science labs that are used for holding lights, flasks and, most importantly, vials, this light is a new take on the angled desk lamp. The flex is braided silk and, if this shade is a little too industrial for your tastes, you can buy it with a plain cotton one.

Padwick’s science lamp with cotton shade

Launched in 2009, Padwick has also created products for Heals, The Conran Shop and and if you like his lighting, go and have a look at his furniture. £165
