Arne Jacobsen Inspired Desk Lamp
Today, the design that he created would never see it's way off a sketchpad; it simply wouldn't be acceptable or probably very useful. What's so different about it? Well, it contains a design feature that one would never in a million years see in a 21st century designed lamp; a cut out hole in the base, designed to hold...an ashtray!
Funnily enough, the hole adds a lightness and elegance to the design and the thought process behind it adds to it's retro appeal!
