A brass petticoat peeks out from under the shade of the Proper Lamp. Designed in 2007 by WIS Design in Stockholm, the lamp strikes a balance between hard (wooden shade) and soft (brass netting) as well as combining clean modernist lines and pure decoration. We'd love to see this in person, the quality of the light diffused through the golden net must be beautiful.
The designers at WIS are Lisa Widen and Anna Irinarchos and they graduated just last year (!) from the Beckman College of Design. Many of their projects are simply smashing - take a look at their site for more design goodness.
