Designed by Tim Rundle for Resident Studio and combining two contrasting materials, this versatile cultured table lamp can be positioned in any environment. Whether it is being utilised as a convenient night light placed upon a bedside table or as a centrepiece on a coffee table the bloom table lamp is a petite globe of illumination set to brighten any space. Constructed of delicate glass and sitting proudly atop a plated stainless steel base, the contrasting materials create a unique yet familiar aesthetic inspired by paper lanterns. A finely perforated mesh core and frosted blown glass, combine to project a soft focus texture onto the inside of the shade whilst a gentle consistent hue is projected upwards into space. Available in black or white, the Blooms distinctive character is evident both in its on and off state, creating an adaptable, value for money table lamp that is not only a sophisticated beacon of light but also a sculptured glass addition to the Bloom family.
