Michael & George pay homage to hardness and blackness with their HB Lamp, a 5-1/2′ floor light shaped like a pencil.The HB Lamp gets a huge boost in cleverness and visual interest from its creative cord, the graphite trail left behind by a doodling pencil. Michael & George make each HB Lamp to order from their UK studio. The pencil’s body is hand-turned cedar with a yellow satin finish and gold type. A hand-spun polished brass ring serves as the eraser bulb’s fixture and a white blown glass diffuser its cover. Over 26′ of cable extend from the pencil’s tip for winding around furniture or mounting in a set word or design on the wall. The lamp itself can also be wall-mounted with an invisible hook and screw system. The HB Lamp is also available in a Mini, desktop-sized version.
