The Getty Lamp is designed to be hung on the wall; it features a single band of material swirled around itself into a coil. The Getty Lamp doesn’t appear to be particularly practical, but it is certainly artistic.
The Getty Lamp was designed by Marcus Tremonto, who has used swirls and squiggles in previous light and lamp designs. For more of his work, check out the gallery above and the links below.
