Lamp Kit001 by Jen Pearson


Jen Pearson, the woman behind the Reclaimed Apothecary Matchstick Bottles, is an industrial designer whose focus is human-centered design. She looks at how people can, want, or need to work with a product rather than their adapting their behavior to a product. The result? Her Lamp Kit001, which was actually part of her thesis. Pearson’s lamp requires assembly, a process she feels “adds an emotional connection between the maker and the object by the simple act of doing.”

The Lamp Kit001 ($180) consists of furniture grade plywood, steel wingnuts, and an electrical component.

Pearson’s Lamp Kit002 ($210) includes sustainably harvested rosewood, steel wingnuts, and an electrical component.

Lamps can also be custom-made to order.
