The Fulcrum Table Lamp is a modern and minimalist re-imagining of a classic archetype. A unique silhouette and an elegantly pivoting shade allow for versatile expression. Its soft, Japanese paper shade is set upon either a sand-cast bronze or cork base, allowing you to seamlessly adjust the light intensity with a gentle brush of the finger.
It was designed by Cheshire Architects, a New Zealand-based practice that creates and crafts with a philosophy of depth and versatility and often fusing traditional techniques with modern fabrication and materials. Founded in 2004, the studio moves organically from large-scale urban projects to tiny details. Through their parallel research, writing, lecturing, publishing, and university teaching, Cheshire creates works of art that truly capture their ethos.
The Fulcrum Table Lamp is a testament to this evolution, embodying the true spirit of Cheshire’s aesthetic and its mission to create objects of beauty and function. The lamp is handmade in New Zealand, with craftsmanship that is both timeless and modern. It remains a constant reminder of the beauty of the transition between the old and the new.
