Ikea introduces the Isamu Noguchi-inspired Vate table lamp range

Vate1

Midcentury design isn't the first thing you might associate with Ikea, but if you dig deep enough, you can find the odd gem lurking on the shelves, like the newly-introduced Vate table lamp range.

It's Ikea's take on the classic 1950s Akari table lamps by Isamu Noguchi, reissues of which sell for just under £160. The Ikea lights (which are in no way attributed directly with Noguchi) are much cheaper, offering up two designs (another pictured over the page), a handmade rice paper shade on a steel frame and of course, some ambient light for your table.

Prices start at £7.99.
