Item details




It all started with a birthday present I made for my wife, a bedside lamp from a vegetable steamer. We were amazed by how good of a lamp it is, being able to open and close and also, because the bulb is off center I allowed it to be rotated so that the light could be aimed at a 360 degrees circle. Plus it created amazing light textures around it and projected them all over the room at night. She could aim it right at her book and let me sleep in the dark.

After that we decided to take it seriously and work on designing it as a line of lamps. This is the Micro lamp - the small desk lamp, named so because it looks a bit like an old microphone. We sought and found the perfect steamer for the job, added a tilt that's connected to its rotation so it can be aimed anywhere, added a reflector and a small handle to help with opening and closing and also added a long life energy efficient xenon bulb that gives a warm light color tone. The Micro lamp has a 3/4 sphere base with a metal toggle switch and a short flexible arm, The base and arm are plated with a bright pewter finish. We even filed and received a patent on the three dimensional aperture shade, wrote an illustrated guide book and designed the lamp's packaging.
