Pieces like this Concrete Lamp by Jonas Wagell will certainly withstand the test of time. Inspiration from this lovely little light fixture came from old-fashioned forms, yet the finished product is perfectly fresh and contemporary. The beautiful balance of bygone design with modern style and natural shapes produces an object that's very easy on the eyes.

Observe this table lamp for a moment -- does it remind you of anything? The form of an incandescent lightbulb seems to be represented, in an enlarged and simplified manner. The frosted cover is soft to see, and so is the ashen base of smoothly blended cement. The only accent to the Concrete Lamp is the switch that you'll notice on the front. A basic gold dial emphasizes that fuss-free is functional and delightful.
