The Truncheons Lamps by Cmmnwlth Design Studio

August 19, 2010

New York-based Cmmnwlth Design Studio have created the Truncheons Lamps for Matter.


Description from Cmmnwlth Design Studio:

The Truncheons are a family of lamps consisting of a suspension, an articulated task lamp, and a freestanding Truncheon to be rested against a wall. Harnessing the tooled traces left by a CNC lathe, the Truncheon body is surfaced with a delicate, metered scallop. At close viewing, the rhythm of this cross-grain scalloping creates a soft interplay with the more linear wood grain of the maple and walnut. Each lamp holds an LED bulb which is warm in color, yet cool to the touch. Viewed indirectly from the lamp’s interior hardwood surfaces, the light emitted is rich in quality while maintaining the efficient characteristics that has driven the development of LED light. The Truncheon task lamp sits in a poured, weighted base of gypsum and marble. Free of electrical components, the heavy base allows the arm of the lamp to make a soft rotation. Avoiding unnecessary knobs or switches, the Truncheons adhere to their namesake- precise, compact sticks fashioned out of traditional materials.
