Design: Apoc Desk/Floor Lamp Materials: Red Oak/Black Walnut
Pitch: "Apoc stands for apocalypse. When the world ends, fancy lamps will be of little use and more primal needs like warmth and food will take precedence. This desk lamp can be deconstructed and turned into a small kindling fire at a moments notice. Just large enough to cook a rat."
"The Apoc lamp is created from very simple raw materials. It is sold in a small tube and assembled by the purchaser by simply fitting the notched parts together. The warm-white LEDs are diffused by a strip of etched lexan that fits flush within the lamp head. Zero tools are required. To further this idea of the kit, I would like to eventually have the parts made with some variation in wood type and finish. I'd like to have the parts available in bulk so that one could select each piece to match the rest or create a custom conglomeration of parts in different wood species. The Apoc lamps are available in the desk and floor versions."
