Simplicity doesn’t have to mean boring, and the Post Lamp is an excellent example of this. Its simplistic aesthetic references the iconic form of a traditional mailbox, where instead of holding a letter, it holds a light. A thin metal pole leads the viewer’s attention on a journey up towards the focal point at the top, the lampshade. It’s this that carries the distinctive form of the post box, as the shape is replicated by a thin sheet of curved metal.
Subtle, muted colors separate it from the product that it is inspired by, making it suited for the welcoming environment of the modern home, and completing a beautiful design.
