Young, Northern Ireland-born designer David Irwin has collaborated with a recently-established Brooklyn-based furniture label Juniper on this series of reduced, transportable table lamps. Simply called ‘M. Lamp’, the design was inspired by the lamps used by the 19th-century miners in England and is made of aluminium and powder-coated steel. Available in either white, black or orange, the light will be officially launched later this month (19 – 22 September) during London’s 100% Design.
More about the lamp:
‘Inspired by the archetypal miner’s lamps of 19th century North East England, Irwin set out to create a contemporary play on the aesthetics and function of these historical icons. Powered by a superior Lithium-ion rechargeable battery, these simple yet beautiful lamps can be wirelessly transported anywhere within the home and office. The lamp, which stands at 22cm, projects 1200 lux of warm light in its standard setting for more than 8 hours on a single charge.
‘And in the case of a power outage, the M Lamp will automatically illuminate at 3x its standard power, making it a useful companion in times of need. Aluminum and steel body with durable high-gloss powder coated finish. Available in black, orange and white. The M Lamp will debut on Kickstarter beginning 13th September and will have its UK Launch at 100% design, stand D32, David Irwin Design Studio.’
