Chaplin Lamp by Martin Hirth

Inspired by Charlie Chaplin’s trademark hat and walking stick, Martin Hirth created the Chaplin Lamp. Made of a simple wooden stand and metal lampshade, the fixture’s “hat” is easily adjustable allowing it to sit at different angles. There are slots that hold the shade in position based on your preference. Also, the light comes from a neon tube, which creates no shadows. I love the nod to Chaplin without it being over the top.
