Less is often more, where contemporary design taste is concerned, and the Beam Table Lamp by Christian Vivanco is a prime example of this principle in action.

The clever creative developed these delightful light fixtures almost by accident, after an increased interest in neglected lumber yard wood resulted in a little experimentation. Seeking a way for consumers to appreciate the natural beauty and character of such disregarded remains as timber beams, the industrial designer affixed a bulb and a single colorful shade to segments of two-by-fours.

What comes from the fetching fusion of materials is a playful piece of functional interior decor. The gently rounded edges of the thermoform invite interactions, so that users may take the Beam Table Lamp with them throughout the room, offering direct close-range lighting and an intimate perspective of the endearing object.
