The Isamu Noguchi lamps of the 1950s have certainly been an inspiration for many modern-day pieces, even from the likes of Ikea. So it's no surprise to see the look turning up again – with a twist – in the Jonathan Adler Relief Drip ceramic lamp.
The profile is very much the same – that usual bulbous shade and tripod-style base, this time in polished nickel. But this is no paper shade, the one here is an unglazed translucent porcelain with perforations, a 150-watt bulb making sure the lamp emits a strong glow from within.
Available directly from the Jonathan Adler site, price is $295.
