This Lamp Looks Like It's Made From Meccano

By Jamie Condliffe on at

The Construction Lamp by Joost van Bleiswijk is a tribute to industrial structures — and as a result it looks rather like its made from the Meccano you played with as a child.

Designed by van Bleiswijk for Moooi, the four-sided structures tapers with height, making it look rather like a telegraph pylon. Each joint of the structure is deliberately exaggerated, with large prominent screws emphasising the way it's put together.

Available in both white or black, there's also a choice of size, too: the first a floor lamp, the second short enough to be used on the table top. The lamp will be formally unveiled at the London Design Festival, before going on sale in Moooi's west London showroom. Pricing and availability are yet to be confirmed.
