Arion Lamp

History repeats itself again and again and so does fashion. And we call it “retro style”. Well, many time all the new designers take a step back and look at the old things that were famous some time ago: masterpieces of designed that appeared in the twentieth century. They admire them and give them a new interpretation – their interpretation and give birth to  a new and fresh item instead of throwing the old piece in the trash. Meet Arion Lamp, a lamp that was reborn from its own ashes, thanks to a visionary designer, added a few modern touches and manufactured again after an iconic midcentury lamp. The old lamp used to be a lot smaller, so what it lacked was size. It overcompensated now with bigger proportions (26″H x 17.5″ D x 6″W) and an impressive marble base that offers the lamp enough stability to put it on the side table, desk and even floor.

The rest of the lamp is made of steel, with a brass lamp shade, which gives it a bit of an industrial look. Its maximum wattage is 25 per socket, but the light is focused, so it is perfect if you want to concentrate it on a particular surface like a desk for example. The lamp is elegant and shiny and somehow its shape resembles a snowdrop. You can have it for $620 from Dwell Studio.
