Every morning from 5am onwards my one year old migrates from his cot to my bed. And while I try to hide under the duvet, he will climb over mummy to the bedside table and demand the digital clock to play with. I happily oblige (anything for a few more minutes shut-eye) as this is the only thing he will play with. We’ve tried books, toys, stuffed animals… but no, the clock is far more interesting.
So British designer Paul Blease’s modular lamp would be the perfect bedside dressing for our room. The powder-coated magnetic lamp is made of different coloured and shaped pieces that can be pulled apart and stuck back together to create all kinds of weird and wonderful shapes. And with a toddler’s imagination there can be hours (one can only hope!) of play to be had with this useful light.
Blease, a recent industrial design graduate from London’s Central Saint Martin’s (a rich stable for emerging design talent), says he prides himself on making things to an exceptional standard that are durable, beautiful, innovative and full of character. Well top score on all those points here.
It doesn’t look like the modular lamp is in production yet, but be sure to hear more from this designer and check out the impressive portfolio on his site.
