Although most desk lamp designs are typically quite flexible to help with lighting up tasks, the Rubber Lamp by Thomas Schnur takes flexibility to a new level.

Schnur's design borrows the materials and form of traditional desk lamps and experiments with new materials. The heat-resistant red silicone skin completely encases the flexible steel rod, electrical components and bulb, making the design seamless and sculptural.

The design is soft, responsive and much less mechanical feeling than a desk lamp made of metal. The pliable nature of silicone lends what Schnur describes as a "warm and organic feel." The design is also friendly feeling and familiar, mimicking components of the human body like the spine and skin.
