Los Angeles-based design studio Feltmark have created the Wald Plug Lamp, a lamp that plugs directly into a wall outlet without the need for a cord.
The designer’s description
Wald is a floor lamp stripped to its most essential parts, then thoughtfully reassembled as a versatile floor lamp to fit any environment.
Incredibly light, the lamp is anchored by the wall socket without any additional support or base. Creating a graphical seamless line where form follows function.
Relying on traditional craftsmanship and deliberate practice, Wald is a bespoke object, thoughtfully and logically made using simple, honest materials and processes.
Precision bent aluminum is bead blasted to a fine texture similar to paper, then color anodized – a process that changes the microscopic crystal structure to increase the thickness of the natural oxide layer on the surface of the metal. Resulting in a beautiful deep finish that is durable and more wear resistant.
The hardwood body is machine milled in 7 unique processes before being hand finished.
Available in two heights, Wald is available in a floor lamp height that stands at 4 feet installed, and a shorter height of 3 feet that is perfect next to a bed.
