Build your own battery-powered Arco Lamp

Colette
Achille Castiglioni’s Arco Lamp is an iconic design – and certainly not cheap to buy. So how about building your own? You can with this Designer Emulation Kit by Mark McKenna for Emulate.

The Aroc is one of three designs available in the kit, the others are Ingo Maurer’s Lucellino and Richard Sapper’s Tizio. All come in kit form (not unlike an Airfix kit). Snap out the parts, put them together, then power them up with a battery. Before you know it, you have a desk-sized design classic.

You can pick up the kit online from Colette, priced at 40 Euros (around £27).
