A Lamp Made Entirely at a Tailor’s Shop
View Slideshow

Metrocuadro Design sets out to rethink the entire production process when it comes to furniture. They seek innovative ways and solutions by asking questions like “Can a table lamp be made entirely in a tailor’s shop?” That simple question led to the creation of the Sleeve Table Lamp, a lamp that draws from both fashion and design.

Handmade in a tailor’s shop near Bologna, Italy, the lamp is made from grey felt, which is sewn with bright red thread and held together with mother of pearl buttons.

During the day, the lamp looks simple and clean and, at night, the light shines through showing its tailored details.
