The Log Lamp was Designed as a Marriage of Organic and Minimalist Styles

There's something very interesting happening in the Log Lamp that quite cleverly brings together two very different conceptual aesthetic notions.

With its rigid rectangular geometries, the exquisite timber piece seems to mimic a block of chopped firewood and the glow that it gives off is reminiscent of bright burning embers. On the other hand, the very same clean cut lines and the unembellished faces of the light fixture express a charming minimalism. Often this style and the organic one are too dissimilar to coexist happily in a single object.

Nevertheless they do, and Jari Nyman and Olli Mustikainen's Log Lamp has another captivating feature. Its switch is embedded in its structure so that a simple depression of its top turns it on as well as off.
