'Don’t Hide Your Light Under A Bushel', table lamp by Uli Budde
After several year’s in the Netherlands the German designer Uli Budde, who started to study at Fachhochschule Potsdam and graduated at Design Acadamy Eindhoven moved back to Berlin. At this year’s DMY festival he presented his newest creation, the table lamp ‘Don’t Hide Your Light Under A Bushel’. It is composed of two basic elements – a cylindric body which includes the Halogene light source and a tilted, cicular reflector. Clear and understandable design – that’s what we like Uli Budde’s work for.
