Bocce Lamp by Emily Robin

Design Showcase 2009

Materials: Ceramic
Price Point: $600

"The Bocce Table Lamp is inspired by old world hand craftsmanship, the type that was made in Europe in the 1950s and before. A time before low quality mass production or a throw away mentality, items that people valued in their homes because of their quality....."

"These items were not made of resin and plastic, but less toxic materials; like ceramic, glass, wood.

This lamp is the first in a collection I am having manufactured by a small ceramic manufacturer near Pompeii Italy. The lamp in the photo is the first proto-type, but another is on the way. I also attached a 3D drawing. The feel is old world but with a contemporary slant."
