By now you all know I have a thing for clever and sexy lighting designs – I therefore just had to share this awesome little desk lamp with you. The Bamboo Desk Lamp, made from steam-bent & laminated bamboo, is the creation of Capetonian Industrial Design student Burghen Siebert.
“The desk lamp was designed with simplicity and function in mind. The lathed lamp shade is toped off with a sand-blasted perspex rim that allows a comfortable 100º glow. The hand spun aluminium fitting allows easy adjustment to the pitch and hight of the lamp, as well as adding a beautiful contrast to the bamboo.”
Isn’t it simply gorgeous?! Well done, Burghen – I would love to see what designs you come up with during the remainder of our studies and thereafter… talented young man![Images & info via]
