Table lamp by Michael Marriot

There is something almost philosophical about Michael Marriott's lamps, as though Wittgenstein had gone shopping for timber and electrical components.

The shades are the one quirky feature: for the standard lamp, a sheet torn from an old masonic ledger; for the table lamp, you attach a postcard of your choice to the clothes peg provided. Part of a group of three gifts to five museums by Marina Vaizey through the Art Fund between 1995 and 2003.
