This unique lamp design is nothing more than a slim plastic encasing over a florescent light tube. It's very slick and very minimalist. According to Metropolis Magazine, "Neil Poulton's latest lighting design was the product of technical ingenuity, exhaustive trial and errorâ€”and self-interest. â€œI am the main client,â€ he says. â€œIt was designed for me.â€ The Paris-based Scottish designer wanted an adjustable lamp that would cast a wash of light over his desk but could be easily moved out of the way when not in use. After experimenting with concepts over several months, he built a deceptively simple-looking system: a plastic-encased fluorescent tube that cantilevers on a thin chrome stem."
