I have loved the La Lampe Gras lamps for as long as I can remember. The utilitarian, almost industrial, design is just so timeless. I only knew of their table lamps though, and was so excited when I saw that fellow Melbournian designers, Hecker Guthrie, had used one of these lovely wall lamps in a kitchen of all places.
Check it out here, this was the kitchen I saw, featured in the latest Belle magazine. I love the little shot of black of the lamp and the taps against all that white. So cool. And apart from looking very cool, they’re also really practical. Love the idea of using one of these in a kitchen…I will be filing this away in the filing cabinet in my mind for future use…
