Screwless Glueless Wonder

Inspired by the painter’s easel, this bare-bones task lamp is composed of little more than a mirrored, Y-shaped frame supporting a socket, bulb and shade. With the shade held in place by the bulb and on/off functionality built into the cord, the design doesn’t require adhesives or screws to keep everything in place. A perfect minimal accent to your desktop!

Designer: Laura Fernandez


  • what? says:

    no glue? so how is the wood held together?

  • jason nolen says:

    That thing is def glued together so the title is wrong and miss leading also it doesn’t even have any joints to help it hold together its just blocks of wood glued together, that could easily fall apart over all not that impressive.

  • Laura fernandez says:

    Wanted to clarify, I did NOT mention that I made this without glue anywhere. The misinterpretation came because I mention that the shade of the lamp is held on by the bulb being screwed into the socket, though I agree I need to work on the joints. you inspired me to redesign it with joints and no glue or screws.

    This is a very attractive and minimalist lamp. Very nice.

    I do hope the cord is just covered in cloth.

  • Laura says:

    I’m not sure exactly what you mean, but the cord is covered in cloth. There are no other coatings on the cloth, so it is still soft to the touch.

  • Lance says:

    where can I buy one of these?

  • Lance says:

    I really like it, where can I buy it?

  • Laura Fernandez says:


    Unfortunately this lamp is one of a kind right now. I am currently in the Industrial Design school at the University of Houston and this is one of my projects.

    I am not sure where you are in the world, but I may be able to make you one sometime? feel free to email me @ [email protected]
