Stone designs was inspired by old enamel cups when it created the Scout Lamp. The old mugs were once used to ration drinks for recreational or military reasons.

This historically inspired lighting fixture comes with a mechanism that lets you decide the light's direction. The lamps have a handle that makes them look more like a cup. They come in beige and red, and they can be hung straight down or tilted on an angle. The scout lamp will be showcased at the Light+Building fair in Germany from the end of march till April 4th.

These lights are a perfect example of how sometimes we don't always have to look ahead to find inspiration. Sometimes the next big thing can be found in the past. The lamps are ideal for furnishing your house in a not too peculiar but still unconventional way.
