We wanted to start experimenting with LED lighting technology and decided that the long traditional bankers desk lamp needed a bit of an update.

There are 3 strips of LED’s laminated between 2 pieces of maple ply.

This lamination not only helps hide the LED’s, but hide the cable as well.

Paired with a 3D printed ceramic base, the lamp has a lightweight visual presence but still hefty physical weight.

The ceramic base features a shallow dish to hold pens, keys, phone, etc.
