Lampo is the beautifully crafted lamp that comes in a tube.
Using age-old techniques, we made a modern lamp that feels like an instant classic. Focused on quality design and simplicity, we designed our lamp’s elegant threaded maple legs and geometric origami shade to bring style and warmth to your home. It's an instant classic.
For some reason, quality lamps are super expensive, and more affordable lamps rarely provide beautiful light.
All lamps tend to be a real pain to move. But it doesn’t have to be like that...
Inspired by the qualities of our materials, we created something simple. The details are about more than aesthetics – they are functional. Maple was an ideal material because of its durability and beautiful grain. Because of maple’s strength, we were able to go back to traditional threading and have the legs screw directly into the wooden baseplate rather than rely on additional hardware. We were looking for a paper with the ability to take a fold and yield exquisite light. We fell in love with traditional Japanese washi paper for its long fibers and tactile character. Our twisted cloth covered cord comes in four great colors–mint, mustard, red, and white–so you have the flexibility to make Lampo your own.
We’ve both had flat-pack nightmares. With Lampo, we wanted make something that was super easy to assemble. Lampo is tool and hassle free, easy to build and take apart. And it all returns neatly to its tube, ready to travel with you to your next home.
Kasia Oźmin and Lindsay Richardson met a decade ago while working at a boutique graphic design studio in New York City. Subsequently, they've collaborated on projects large and small. Developing Lampo, they had the opportunity to work on something for them and by them. In addition to their creativity, they bring a strategic and user-focused approach to Lampo.
Kasia Oźmin received a BFA from the Dún Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design and Technology, and has since gone on to become an award winning designer working for numerous acclaimed design studios including Mother NY, Anomaly, Yard NY, Number 17 and Quirky, before setting up her own studio, Together We Create, in Brooklyn, New York. Her professional achievements include designing two series of stamps for the Irish postal service, winning a shelf load of design awards, and having work featured in numerous publications, including Creative Review and the Guardian. Kasia's interest in the design of "things" was first ignited running the halls of the National College of Art and Design in Dublin, Ireland, where her father was the head of faculty teaching product design.
