Go On the Record

This illuminating, contemporary desk lamp shines a light on both the future and the past. The ultra-modern design plays with contrasting texture, color and material, all within the constraints of a vertical cylinder. But while the style is forward-looking, it carries an element of nostalgia at its very core: the horizontal lines of the base are created from a stack of vintage, 45 records. Rather than focusing on the musical aspect of the records, the layered black vinyl becomes a dynamic, geometric element, with their appearance seeming to shift depending on your perspective. With an 8 foot cord, you'll be able to position the lamp on a desk, in a favorite reading corner, or someplace where it can become a visual focal point.

The genesis of this remarkable lamp began when Brooklyn-based designer Orlando Dominguez found a box of records being discarded by a radio station in his neighborhood. He rescued the records, and pondered them for more than a year before lighting upon this sophisticated hybrid of fine art and furniture accessory. Made in Brooklyn, New York.

Notes
Care: Do not place the lamp in direct sunlight or over a direct heat source: radiators, vents or too near a fireplace. Smoke, ashes and heat will damage the lamp. Dust vinyl with a clean, dry, cloth or with a small amount of furniture polish. Compressed air can also be used. Avoid touching the surface of the shade—oil marks from fingers are difficult to remove. Lamp comes equipped with a 3-way socket which allows you to use a 3-way bulb but, a one way bulb will work as well.
