Lightweight Task Lamps by Tord Boontje

Christine Chang Hanway November 09, 2012

Dutch-born, London-based industrial product designer Tord Boontje designed the Lightweight lamp to combat heavy lamp bases that are expensive to ship. We like the idea of creating a customizable lamp base that can be weighted with whatever you choose (beach stones, ripening fruit, or other favorite objects).
