Lamp Chop

Jeth Koh set out to design a contemporary mood light that requires a minimum of material and easy production. Koh stripped back the design, “chopping off unnecessary parts of a traditional lamp and redefining the functions of the different parts of the lamp”. Lamp Chop is laser cut from a single piece of sheet metal and folded to form a wall hanging lamp. While it resembles the silhouette of a traditional lamp the stand and base is “re-functioned into the bulb holder”. I like the efficiency of this design, the minimal material use and a minimum number of cuts and the way it reminds me of pop-up books. It’s the kind of design you look at and think to yourself “why didn’t I think of that?”
