The Sophie Wooden Desk Lamps Mix Timber Craftsmanship with Textiles

Sophie is a line of wooden desk lamps from design studio Lasfera that features elegantly minimalist shapes with some surprising pops of detail.

Dark or pale wooden exteriors give this chunky lamp collection a heavy-duty look although it is, in fact, light and hollow. In contrast with this woodworking style, the lampshade features a single row of buttons that continues all the way down to the base of each lamp. As an artistic form of optical illusion, the buttons appear to be holding the wood together as the timber panels overlap beneath them.

The delicate textile button additions are what set the Sophie line of bold wooden desk lamps apart, adding a quirky and unusual hint of humor that those with a true eye for detail will greatly appreciate.
