Retractable Table Lamps
Switch-It by Christina Sicoli Turns from Furniture to Fixture

By: Amelia Roblin (Superstar) Jul 3, 12

There have been so many clever designs that integrate the functions of a table and a lamp together, but few are articulated in the manner of Switch-It by Christina Sicoli. The side table and the table lamp are a practical duo; however, this design fulfills just one purpose at a time.

This fact is not a criticism of quirky object, for its flexibility is something to be admired. Logically placed within a living room environment, its form adapts to the varied activities of the occupants and users. This contraption, with a remarkably small footprint, is ideal for close-packed quarters and optimized to perform the preferred function without taking up too much space. Switch-It by Christina Sicoli can simply be pushed down into its shaft, and with a fanned-out lampshade it transforms from floor lamp to raised surface.
