For some reason, these Reinhard Dienes lamps make me think of what the little Pixar lamp would look like if it grew up. Called La Grande, this collection is a series of long lampshade lights that come in a variety of colors. The lamps are supported by a metal base and a wood stem mechanism. Its slender shade is beneficial if you're looking for something that gives you direct light.
Reinhard Dienes will be launching La Grande for Anthologie Quartett at MasonObjet 2011.
