The Synapse Table Lamp Was Inspired by Living Mind Mechanisms

Great thought went into the design of the Synapse Table Lamp, in more ways than one. Obviously, function, form and decoration were taken into consideration, but the actual science of thought was integrated as well. You might not see it without an explanation but the shape of these quirky illuminators comes from the architecture of nerve cells in the brain.

Modeled on the twig-like axon that sends signals to recipient dendrites, this little light fixture extends outwards from a tripod base of three tiny branches. Each of these has a small wooden foot and points upwards with a bright beautifully blown lightbulb. Alexandra Denton finished the Synapse Table Lamp with playful colors like aqua, pale green and blue. Whether you're fascinated by psychology or not, these items will capture your attention.
