When searching for new and interesting lighting I came across two interesting wall mounted lamps designed by Giles Godwin-Brown. The first one is Nepa Lamp, described by its creator as a ” two-dimensional lamp silhouette that seamlessly transforms into a fully functioning three-dimensional task lamp.” The wall-mounted 6 ft high lamp was built out of conventional materials – birch plywood with stainless steel and aluminum details – with the help of computer-controlled technologies. It uses friction hinges along with a pivot in the base to enable a full range movement and utilizes high-powered LED lighting to spread its functional light. I love this one because of the simplicity and functionality.
The second one is the Candor Lamp designed for commercial and industrial use, although I feel it can be used anywhere. LED technology was incorporated into a cotton and timber design, with a transparent strip that creates a halo-like effect of light on the surrounding wall. Giles Godwin-Brown describes his work: “Inspiration was taken from previous classics of the lighting industry combined with my fundamental design principles that require my products to be in their most simple form, whilst always ensuring this does not inhibit their intended function.”
