The Peel Lamp Appears to Come Apart, Emitting Increased Light

Many light fixtures permit you to modify the direction of the most intense beams, but few do it in the manner that the Peel Lamp does. This quirky domestic accessory comprises a square base, a straight stem and a curious unfurling sphere perched on the top.

The support structure of Carrie Curtin's table lamp is finished in black, contrasting greatly with the clean white color of the FDM-printed lampshade. This unusual crowning form seems to have been inspired by an unraveling orange peel, incorporating an open top, a precise tear and a bent corner. The slot created down the side of the Peel Lamp lets more light escape, affording the user the choice of how to orient the piece to achieve his desired lighting effect.
