Block Lamp by Harri Koskinen

Block Lamp

Block Lamp ($120)

I’ve been interested in interior lighting lately, and there are some really awesome (albeit expensive) ways to brighten up a room.  Consistently a best seller in the MOMA store, the Block Lamp, designed by Harri Koskinen, certainly fits the bill.  Inspired by industrial glass bricks, the lamp is very simply a naked bulb encased in two hand cast blocks of glass.  It won’t fill the room with sunlight (it only accomodates a 25-watt candelabra bulb which isn’t included), but it will definitely set the mood.  I think my favorite part of the lamp is the cord, covered in woven red shielding to prevent damage to it and will certainly stand out from all the other cables cluttering up your room (also comes in white and black).  More pictures and a link to purchase after the fold.

You can purchase the Block Lamp from a number of online retailers, but my preference is the MOMA store.  If you want the white or black corded versions, you can get them here.
