Justin has a serious aversion to the 1980s, so turned his nose up at this rather great ’80s desk lamp. I really do understand where he’s coming from – it wasn’t the best period for design, but the boldness of the red on this lamp and it’s very simple design won me over! Plus you can’t write something off just because it had the misfortune to be produced at the wrong time – you have to be a bit more forgiving than that when it comes to design (I’m talking to you Mr Machen-Moore!).
There’s some wear to the base, but otherwise it’s relatively clean. I think that this lamp would look fantastic in a contemporary office environment.
Dimensions: 30cm tall (when fully extended) x 14cm in diameter (at base)
