Flexibility is key where lighting is concerned; any good lighting fixture should work in many different locations in your home so that you can rearrange at will. The Clamp Lamp from designer Ola Giertz was designed for Swedish lighting brand Oriva. Its extreme flexibility make it suitable for any room, and for any place in a room.
Shaped like a large wooden clothespin with a light bulb on one end, the Clamp Lamp can sit atop a surface on its flat bottom edge. Alternatively, it can be hung from a flat surface such as a shelf or table edge.
Although the clothespin-shaped lamp doesn’t actually hinge and move like a real clothespin, it does have the kitschy appeal of the retro laundry accessory.
The small light bulb on the outside edge of the wooden lamp’s base looks a bit like a decorative holiday light. The overall effect is one of a whimsical but utterly useful home accessory that would look charming in any room.
