The Concrete Reader desk lamp by Alexander Krivoshlykov looks like something you could find children climbing on in a playground. With its dimensions only measuring 300 by 500 mm, though, the desk lamp has a strong spotlight effect that makes it ideal for focused reading.

While the Concrete Desk Lamp doesn’t strike one at first as being particularly fanciful, the orb’s gray, moon rock-like surface makes it an interesting choice for tactile internal decorum. The desk lamp is supported by three thin wooden legs, giving it the impression that the planetarium is supported by huge leverage, while a hole close to the base of the tilted orb holds a bulb that connects to the back through a wire. From afar, the Concrete Desk Lamp’s stony surface invites the curious in, if only to touch it and confirm its texture for themselves.
