but is it art? posted by

Frank Buchwald makes room lamps, like Ferrari make golf carts


If we had the money, the mansion, the courage and the gaudy style, we’d probably think about buying this Frank Buchwald Type 12 floor lamp. Sure it’s crudely ostentatious, and probably uses far too much precious electricity for the good of the planet, but it’s not really a lamp is it? More a work of art; a sculpture as homage to light. The ironic thing is, if you’re rich enough to drop $10,000 on a lamp, you’re probably too busy to switch it on. Oh, or maybe you’ve got people to do that?


You can find more Frank Buchwald stuff here, if you’re interested.

  • Looks like a very scientific lamp. It looks cool too. Any suggestions where this would fit? The study room perhaps? (if there is a study room of course)
