15W max E14 type ICE block Transparent MODERN cast-glass LIGHT BULB modern SCANDINAVIAN design lamp, transparent; The Block Lamp was created by Finnish designer Harri Koskinen for Design House Stockholm. This spectacular table lamp is a classic Scandinavian design icon! Each part of the block lamp is hand cast and it undergoes an extremely long cooling process to avoid cracking later on if exposed to strong temperature changes. The matt bulb shape is sand-blasted. Finnish designer Harri Koskinen was inspired by industrial glass bricks when he created his now classic Block Lamp. Two hand-cast glass blocks conceal a 25-watt candelabra bulb (not included) within a matte sandblasted bulb shape, creating the illusion of a common light bulb encased in glass. This anniversary edition features a red woven cord and can be placed on a floor or table for ambient lighting.  The Block Lamp was featured at the New York Museum of Modern Art and London's Victoria and Albert Museum. It has wun numerous awards including the Swedish Design Award and the Design Plus Ambiente Award.
