The DIY Brutalist-Inspired Lamp might seem like a complex home decor project, and that's because in a way it is. In a way, those who endeavor to undertake such a task will be making more of an art piece than a light fixture. It boasts a sculptural look that make official designs as exorbitantly priced as they are. But now people can enjoy their own for a fraction of the cost.

Conceived by Meg Kemnar of Design Milk, the DIY Brutalist-Inspired Lamp is made using soft copper, hammered texture spray paint, wood paste finishing wax, wood stain and, of course, all of the necessary tools. Essentially, the copper is cut jaggedly, painted and then rolled into ascending layers for the desired distressed, fortress-like look.
