Drawing Lamp by Thomas Feichtner

Drawing Lamp by Thomas Feichtner is a consistently simple lamp reduced to the basics, including cable and illuminant.

Feichtner designed this desk lamp for his own use. As the name implies, the Drawing Lamp is a lamp preferably used by the designer to illuminate the drawing area. On the one hand it lights the whole desk surface, on the other hand its light can be directed precisely to where it is needed on the paper — as Feichtner prefers it for sketching.

The construction of the Drawing Lamp allows it to be placed on a desk at two different angular positions: in a horizontal position with the illuminant slightly above the desk surface or in a vertical position with a maximum distance between the illuminant and the desk surface. The lamp keeps its balance as in a balancing act.

The lamp is basically a steel tube, cable and LED light (inside the tube) — just the bare essentials necessary to perform its function.
