Work Lamp by Form Us With Love


Design House Stockholm, a multi-faceted brand specializing in contemporary Scandinavian design, exhibited a few new pieces alongside its existing collection at this year's New York International Gift Fair (NYIGF). One piece which caught my eye was the Work Lamp by the Swedish trio Form Us With Love.

An elegant chromed or gold-plated reappraisal of the classic workshop task lamp, the Work Lamp serves as a reminder that oftentimes the most perfect forms are in plain sight, just waiting for a tweak from the design-minded eye.

Although there was little excitement at this year's NYIGF, it was encouraging to find so many vendors braving this economic tundra in hopes of bolstering flagging sales.
