Design House Stockholm Work Lamp
A construction lamp from the garage and the workshop, always handy and within reach in a dirty and greasy environment. Hanging from the ceiling, standing on the floor, lying on a table. Doesn’t it work fine just as it is? Almost. To bring it inside, to turn an everyday object into something special, some refinement was required. But just a little. The flimsy steel wire needed some toughness, solidity and more refined angles. And why not change the colour from strong black to gold? Or chrome-plating? “One lamp to rule them all,” joke Jonas Pettersson, John Löfgren, and Petrus Palmér who together constitute the acclaimed young design trio Form Us With Love. “We wanted to use as little material as possible, while still protecting the naked bulb. However, the traditional construction lamp was already there: it’s an everyday do-it-all object. We just had to refine it!” While preserving its blue-collar roots, the Work Lamp will of course stand out in its new surroundings, and its rebellious attitude can naturally be mitigated with the dimmer. The Work lamp can also be plugged into the wall socket.
