i like this lamp, designed by jamie mclellan for resident. i recently posted about the studio chair designed for the new zealand company which also featured some lovely details, which i had seen during the london design festival next to a larger, floor lamp version of this one.
like the floor version, the cantilevered lamp takes its inspiration from the mast arrangements of classic sailing boats. the simple, two dimensional silhouette relies on a tensioned electrical cable for support. very elegant indeed!
