Bender Table Lamp
by Blu Dot
At A Glance:
This lamp is what it would look like if Picasso got together with Blu Dot and they had a baby. A bent, powder-coated steel base turns upwards to support the light assembly and lampshade, and a cloth covered cord trails down through a hole in the lower base. The obtuse angles of the frame give the Bender Lamp a soft appearance, and the cloth lampshade looks great when it's lit up. One CFL is included.
What's To Like:
Here's a lamp for all you who love asymmetrical objects. There's a beauty inherent in the Bender Lamp that couldn't have been there if it was perfectly symmetrical. It's well-balanced, but completely unique. Oh, and it does a really good job at being a table lamp.
What's Not to Like:
Here's where those of you who need symmetry chime in, right? Bender is a "take it or leave it" kind of lamp.
The Bottom Line:
With a quirky structure and monochrome color scheme (dashed with red, if you choose the white lamp), the Bender Lamp by Blu Dot is a great answer to any need for a table lamp you might have. It provides light as you'd expect a lamp to do, and won't disappoint for looks.
