This lamp has been bouncing around my head for a few weeks. I sourced textile electrical cable from Sweden, by way of a German eBay reseller (if anyone knows a U.S. source, please hit me up on the contact page), and the rest of the parts are standard hardware store stuff. The main body is the leg of an Ikea LACK side-table. Very happy with how this came out.
Further plans include wall and ceiling mounts via rare-earth magnets. Higher-res pics in the design section. :D
UPDATE: Hello new visitors. I've had so much interest from the posts on Materialicious and Design Milk (thanks!) that I've decided to offer a limited-run series of twenty-five pieces. They will be the same color combination as shown here, with an 8ft. cable, for USD $225. If you're interested, get in touch.
FURTHER UPDATE: Lamp! is now available on our Etsy shop, at a lower price than the first run pieces. Buy one, why don't you.
