A Man After Your Own Heart

Here's a guy who likes late night reading as much as you do. This zinc-plated stick figure is settled in to read as long as you want, and he's even brought his favorite semi-transparent plastic book lampshade. Shedding just enough light to allow you to finish Jane Eyre, his light bulb head and translucent body emit the perfect soft bedside glow. A must for design loving bibliophiles, this lamp is a truly unique gift for new homes or college bound kids. Designed by the Anglo-Swiss design duo Dan Black and Martin Blum. Made in England.

This item has been discontinued. When it sells out, it will no longer be available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

From a manufacturing background, Dan grew up discussing products and design with his family from an early age. His passion and skill for design was recognized in a first class honors degree from the respected Design for Industry course at the University of Northumbria (Newcastle).

Dan gained further professional foresight working at IDEO (London). Frog Design (California) and under Julian Brown at Studio Brown (Bath). Dan completed successful group projects with his friend Martin Blum while studying in Newcastle, sparking the idea for the creative partnership that is now black + blum.

"We are driven by the opportunity to give each design their own unique character and soul. Our brief is to create functional products that will charm and entertain."

        i expected something a bit cooler than this. I ended up putting it outside on my patio because it looked too wimpy on my night stand. Not so great for the price.
