Simplicity Of The Herston Desk Lamp

"...Delicately engineered to allow smooth and effortless adjustment to any position, the Herston Desk Lamp is a beautiful design and entirely self-balancing..."

You always need to appreciate good, clean desk equipment in the aspirational home and this lamp by Oliver Chambers, a former Dyson designer, is a nice touch that would really complement any study or lounge. Featuring no unsightly cords, sleek lines in all it’s form and a design that is easy-to-adjust, the Herston Desk Lamp would be a particularly nice addition.

Delicately engineered to allow smooth and effortless adjustment to any position, the Herston Desk Lamp is a beautiful design and entirely self-balancing. To achieve it’s no-cable status, the desk lamp uses carefully concealed conducting elements alongside hand-crafted wood to create an uninterrupted, sculptural form that enables the safe passage of electricity up to the bulb section. Dimmable, the light can be used as both a bright conventional task light or a more subdued mood light, all in all helping to meet your needs throughout the day and the evening.

With Dyson’s high credibility of it’s employees it is no surprise that such a neat design is the product of Chambers, and the intelligently engineered self-balancing part is achieved by the careful placement of the lamp’s counter-balance mechanism. Adjustable to any position in one simple, smooth action, such movement is achieved via two leaf-shaped cast-iron weights that keep everything balanced whatever the position. Without any screws or anything needed to be adjusted in order to move the design, this is a nice touch. A 360° rotational base that has hidden ball bearings within allows the smooth rotation of the lamp, again allowing the positioning of the light source to exactly where you need it.

Available in solid oak with white elements and walnut with black elements, the design has already proven successful on Kickstarter, but SATORI & SCOUT are sure it will become further commercially available at a later point.

Simplicity In Craftsmanship

Nicely fusing craftsmanship with commercial awareness and flair, this lamp is a nice realisation of what can be achieved by a decent understanding of how product design and commercial manufacturing (like at Dyson) really works, even if you're a single band designer.
