spun lamps

I’m the type of person you really can’t take into a store sometimes. If there’s a toy or gadget I can fiddle with on a table, I’m going to do it. Whenever I see something top-shaped, I have to stop and see how long I can get it to spin, so when I saw these new lamps from Evie Group, I immediately wanted to tip them on one end and give ’em a twirl. I’m pretty sure it wouldn’t end well, so for now, I’m going to admire them from afar. This “Spun” series of lighting is up for a Bombay Sapphire Design Discovery Award and will be officially released to the market this December. I love that the lamps have wires that can be wound around the lamp or placed on the floor to resemble a top that has spun out. It’s such a playful way to approach both hanging and standing lamps.

    must not spin it when i see it.. that’s pretty hard to resist! but also makes a pretty good lighting accessory!

    Oh my! I have been looking for a light for our dining room and this might be the one!

  4. Very Cool. They look like space ships, no acorns, no spinning tops, oh my! They are very versatile aren’t they? I love the simplicity and beautiful lines.
