This Lamp Was Inspired by Italic Typography

By Jamie Condliffe on at

If this lamp looks somehow familiar, that’s because it’s based on something you see hundreds of times every single say: a single italicised letter i.

The brainchild of COORDINATION Berlin, the lamp is constructed from a solid lump of polished marble, with an anodized aluminium shade that flips up when you need some light. Inside the head of the lamp sits a long-life LED ring, and a tocuh-dim function allows you to change the intensity of the light by interacting directly with the lamp. “This crafted edition piece with its reduced sculptural approach plays on classic and postmodern design iconography,” say COORDINATION. Quite. It will be available to buy some time this year. [COORDINATION via Moco Loco]
