Built on Rock and Roll

This brilliant, contemporary desk lamp finds a visual harmony between 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 a nostalgic love of the past at its 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 and green 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
Do not place the lamp in direct sunlight. Do not place the lamp over a direct heat source: radiators, vents or too near a fireplace. Smoke, ashes and heat damage will damage the lamp. Dust with a clean, dry, cloth with a small amount of Pledge or similar polish on the vinyl. You can also use a can of compressed air as a dust remover. Avoid touching the surface of the shade—oil marks from fingers are difficult to remove. Your lamp comes with a 3-way socket which allows you to use a 3-way bulb. A one way bulb will also work just fine.
