look at this kick a$$ lamp from benoit collette and david wykes for industrial design firm teague out of seattle. with a client roster like microsoft, panasonic and boeing, you might think they don’t have the time to do small jobs, but this lamp is an excellent exception. it starts out flat and like a cat stretches its sinewy form into a led studded task lamp.

apparently, teague is currently seeking a manufacturing partner to produce this elegant and minimal lamp. after looking at these photos, don’t you think they’ll find one soon?

    i love it too and hope it goes into production!

    Very cool. I love how sleek it is. I wonder how it works in real life (enough light where you need it, etc.) It will be interesting to see if it gets manufactured.

    hi bri,

    i too love the slickness and sleekness and also wonder if it gives off enough light. don’t you love how it folds down?

    hopefully it is bright enough and hopefully we will see it in action soon!

    thanks for the comment!

  5. Bri Says:

    I DO love how it folds down. I like the idea of things that articulate so you can use them the way you want to. Fun!

  6. the scholar Says:

    you are smart bri! 🙂
