HB Pencil Lamp

All that's missing are the teeth marks. Michael & George pay homage to hardness and blackness with their HB Lamp, a 5-1/2' floor light shaped like a pencil. In and of itself a lamp created in the image of a #2 isn't that cool. The standardized test-averse may even view it as pure evil--a nightmare with a lightbulb on top. But the HB Lamp gets a huge boost in cleverness and visual interest from its creative cord, the graphite trail left behind by a doodling pencil.

Michael & George make each HB Lamp to order from their UK studio. The pencil's body is hand-turned cedar with a yellow satin finish and gold type. A hand-spun polished brass ring serves as the eraser bulb's fixture and a white blown glass diffuser its cover. Over 26' of cable extend from the pencil's tip for winding around furniture or mounting in a set word or design on the wall. The lamp itself can also be wall-mounted with an invisible hook and screw system.

The HB Lamp is also available in a Mini, desktop-sized version.
