Is it just us, or is Ikea's Fas Clamp Spotlight the most versatile lamp ever? We've been noticing it for years in unexpected (and expected) spaces, and it never fails to please. Finland-based industrial design student Minni of Nimi Design has reimagined the spotlight as a task lamp, complete with a concrete base.
As all great DIYs projects begin, Minni obsessed over a Cox & Cox task lamp she first spotted on Pinterest before deciding to just make it herself. She sourced a few strips of teak, the Fas Spotlight ($9.99 each), bolts, screws, and a mold for the concrete base. For further instructions, see Nimi Design for the DIY project.
