i can imagine the soft glow emitted from their tightly handcoiled shades, and love the idea of these in a craft room (duh) or a little vestibule or foyer. what a cool thing to come home to!

the lamps can be seen at the los angeles branch of the permanently cool reform school. but you can also order them from her directly: $100 for the black and white light, $120 for the yellow and $130 for the multicolored. be sure to check out her great portfolio too while you are over there!

    hi sosser,

    gee whiz i was just heading over to your blog when i saw you were here! aren’t these fun? i love how the coils are perfectly proportioned. it reminds me of when i used to stick my finger in the middle of the tape measure to see how tall a cone i could make…

    glad you like these too – thanks for the visit!

    Oh yes. These are amazing. And tape measures are fun. I have one sitting beside the computer to while away the moments when any loading or rendering is going on. I hadn’t tried making a tall cone, but thanks for the tip Gigi!
