Paperclip Lamp by David Wykes and Benoit Collette

This ones been “doing the rounds” for a few days now and we’ve finally found the breathing space to push it a little as well.

Years ago, as we still made our living selling wares on farmers markets, we once drove a hired van into the sharp corner of another traders caravan hatch… We’ll never forget the overpowering, nauseousness as we realised the windscreen was cracked.

A similar feeling gripped as as we saw the first image at papercliplamp.com

Paperclip Lamp: An idea takes shape....

Paperclip Lamp: An idea takes shape....

We all sit and bend paperclips, we all spend our days thinking about design, form and function, we all turn a table lamp on as the hour grows later.

Yet only Seattle based David Wykes and Benoit Collette managed to see the connection.

And irritating for us as that is, we did have to laugh when we thought of the Hamburg Student show at DMY Youngsters in Berlin and how many of their lamps were almost a paperclip …but just not quite.

There is very little one need say about the paperclip lamp, it is pure design and belongs next to every MacBook on an uncluttered desk.

Fold it out when you need light and fold it down when your finished.

Fantastic.
