Creative Design: Wrecking Ball and Crane Lamp (6 pics)

Here are a couple lamps that I would love to have in my bedroom…

Designed by Studio Job, the Wrecking Ball Lamp is cast from solid bronze. A bulldozer forms the base of the lamp, while a “wrecking ball” light-bulb brightens up any room.

The Crane Lamp is a floor-standing structure also cast from bronze. An enforced cord runs through the core to a hanging light and shade. Indicative of Studio Job's fine attention to detail, small bulbs light the boom point from which the jib hangs. An ancient invention, the crane has a long history of industrial use. Here, it has been miniaturized into an ornamental design piece.

Both pieces were commissioned by Carpenters Workshop Gallery in London and will be shown through May 8th, 2010.
