A mere bare lightbulb will do the trick to illuminate a room, but a much improved atmosphere can be established with something like the 001 Task Lamp. This small desk lamp has been designed with economy and simplicity in mind; however, the designer was not content to deliver anything bare-minimum.
The solution was to use a few industrially abundant materials that could be combined into a lovely light fixture with charm. A circular base and a long trough lampshade were made from folded powder-coated aluminum, and these two pieces were connected with a lathe-spun post of beech wood. To brighten up the minimalist design of the 001 Task Lamp, StudioMK's Mark Kelley gave the electrical cord a fabric-wrapped sheath in bold red. The table lamp fulfills its function with a ray of playfulness and delight.
