Pencil Light, by Caroline Olsson.

Caroline Olsson’s Pencil Light is a lamp and a container. Something about it vaguely reminds me of the main character in Wall-e, or Luxo Jr. but that doesn’t bother me one bit. The purpose of the lamp is to ” accentuate your stationery, and has the desire to encourage you to write and draw more analog.” according to the designer. I can relate to this, since my day job is working as a designer for a company that produces ink on paper products.

The lamp is made from birch wood, and features copper and brass screw mechanisms that allow the light to be adjusted to a variety of positions. The box below functions as a container for your writing and drawing implements of choice, and when not in use the light can be closed to hide everything.

Materials: birch, aluminium, steel, copper, copper and brass.
Light: LED bulb.
