Sharpener – A Blast from the Past
Do you remember the last time you sharpened a pencil? As time marches on, the act of ‘sharpening pencils’ seems to have become a memory from our school days, yet it still carries a sense of childlike innocence and simplicity.
Japanese designer Nanako Kume found inspiration in this simple act for her ‘Sharpener’ lamp. She writes, “Ever since I was little, I’ve been fascinated by the shape of pencil shavings and the fleeting nature of the moment they’re created. I thought, if I could increase the size and thickness of this object that’s usually discarded as waste, I could create a new product while preserving its shape.”
To bring this concept to life, Kume developed a special, manually operated, large-scale sharpener. She soaked blocks of wood in water to soften them, sprayed the outer layer with paint, and then whittled down the wood. The result? A charming and eye-catching lamp that not only lights up your room but also sparks a sense of nostalgia.
Every time you look at this lamp, you’ll be reminded of the simple joy of sharpening pencils, the fleeting beauty of pencil shavings, and the endless possibilities of imagination. It’s a piece that not only illuminates your space but also warms your heart, bringing a touch of whimsy and a dash of childhood joy into your home.

With its striking design, bold colors, and daring geometric patterns, this lamp is a true embodiment of the Memphis style, guaranteed to turn heads and spark conversations.
‘Treetops’ is the brainchild of Ettore Sottsass, one of the founders of the Memphis Group. Known for his abstract design language, Sottsass has crafted this metal floor lamp to be as much a piece of art as it is a functional object. Drawing inspiration from the shape of treetops, the lamp stands tall and slender, taking up minimal space while providing a scientifically sound lighting system for your space.
Every time you look at this lamp, you’ll be reminded of the beauty of nature, the boldness of abstract art, and the power of design.

The brainchild of French industrial designer and architect Martine Bedin, a co-founder of the Memphis Group, ‘SuperSuper’ is a testament to the power of playful design. It can serve as a table lamp, a floor lamp, or simply a piece of decor, adding a dash of fun to any room. The lamp post, adorned with vibrant gradient colors, sits on a base and is decorated with cartoonish wheels, making it look like a small toy. Crafted from fiberglass, this lamp is as durable as it is charming.
Howdy Floor Lamp – A Chuckle in Every Corner
Imagine a lamp that not only illuminates your room but also brings a smile to your face, a lamp that adds a touch of humor to your everyday life. That’s exactly what the ‘Howdy, Neighbor’ floor lamp from American lighting brand Trueing does.

Each lamp in this series is one-of-a-kind. Committee produces a maximum of eight pieces per year, each with its own name and story revolving around various themes such as thought, power, civilization, luxury, and responsibility. There are four different designs in the series, each unique and painstakingly assembled by hand over several weeks.
