Smith The Wooden Lamp - Steampunk Inspired

British designers and makers are right now hard at work in their studios and workshops :
Restoring, refurbishing, recycling and re-inventing.

Just a reminder of some great British inventors:

The Light Bulb  -Joseph Swan
The Catseye - Percy Shaw
The Telephone - Alexander Graham Bell
The Television - John Logie Baird
The (Safety) Bicycle (introduction of the chain drive) - John Kemp Starley
Cement - Joseph Aspdin
The Spinning Frame - Richard Arkwright
The Electric Motor - Richard Faraday
Photography - William Henry Fox Talbot
The World Wide Web - Tim Berners-Lee

Dezigne have a brilliant new product in store exclusively in Nottingham, created by a product design student from Nottingham Trent University.

Smith The Wooden Lamp - A Steampunk inspired lamp made from wooden components, cogs and wheels that connect together and allow the lamp angles to be adjusted. The lamp can be purchased in kit form with assembly guide or purchased ready-assembled - 

"SMITH The Wooden Lamp  is designed for model lovers. It is a fusion of art, toy model and lighting. It aims to stand out from the majority of minimalist lighting design. It also aims  to catch attention and encourage people to touch and play with  it"

Steampunk is an inspired movement of creativity and imagination. With a backdrop of either Victorian England or America’s Wild West at hand, modern technologies are re-imagined and realized as elaborate works of art, fashion, and mechanics. If Jules Verne or H.G. Wells were writing their science fiction today, it would be considered “steampunk.” With the Victorian British Empire or American Wild West as the backdrop, steampunk projects are a challenge of making something elegant out of random objects.
Its modern technology -powered by steam!
