Whilst classic lamp designs by the likes of Kaiser Idell and Guzzini remain something to long for, some times in life you have to just suggest for something like Ikea’s Kroby Work Lamp.
Its look may not be iconic, but it still has a classic shape to it. The glass shade is hand blown so each one is different –a dash of individuality that you wouldn’t normally expect with something for under £20. The lamp is part of a series of Kroby lighting products, although some of the other options look more contemporary than this little work lamp.
It costs just £14 from Ikea.
