$900 Designer Lamp DIY'ed With Affordable Hardware Parts

Some people see a design they like and ask, "where can I buy that?". A select few will be inspired to ask themselves, "how can I make that?". Designer Aritz Bermudez of CreativeFarm spotted Peter Bristol's luminous corner piece, the Established & Sons Corner Light, and realized although the $910 light was out of his league, putting together a DIY facsimile was not...

The inspiration, Established & Sons Corner Light is a steel bracket frame with light source inside, with a magnetically attached fabric diffuser attached to the bracket for soft ambient lighting.

No specific details given about Aritz's DIY version, but it looks like he's used a common shop lamp available at most any hardware store, alongside a dimmer. What's not clear is what he's used for the frame or diffusing shade. An alternative materials list would use balsa wood, rice paper, and low watt/low heat LED bulbs, but it's obvious Aritz's version is using different materials.

Take a peek for yourself with the Corner Lamp Project Part 1 and Part 2 (no part 3 as promised yet).
