Anyone knows about the HB pencil. It is perhaps the most iconic writing instrument of all times, next to the fountain pen. Also, we all know that with a pencil we can write and draw. But what happens when imagination tests all boundaries? The iconic HB pencil becomes a HB Pencil Lamp, perfect for any hope and type of interior design, be it classy or eccentric.
This interesting lamp was created by a husband and wife team, Michael and George, who decided to give the terms ‘fun and whimsical’ a new spin in both life and work. The high quality materials of this lamp stay as true as possible to the pencil’s natural colors. The HB Pencil Lamp is going to make its debut at Tent London during this year’s London Design Festival.
Michael & George mentioned they aim to attract both attention and a smile with their works. Their philosophy is overall a lighthearted one. They also added: “This is evident in our debut series ‘Stationery Objects’ where we have re-imagined familiar office items and elevated them to striking design pieces.” They definitely achieved their aim in a classy and fun way. Their lamp is sure to do the trick and attract the attention of all who enter the room.
The lamp has a hand-turned wood body, hand-spun brass, hand-blown glass, and rubber tip. Moreover, the cable emerging from the pencil tip is 33 feet ( 10 m ) long and can be used to “scrawl” throughout a room. The light of the HB Pencil Lamp is shed from the opposite end, the place where a rubber would be in case of a normal pencil.
The couple wish to make their design a form of inspiration. They said that their “hope is to inspire light bulb moments within everyone who comes in to contact with the ‘HB Lamp’ (just as the traditional HB pencil has been the conduit to so many light bulb moments throughout history.)”
