The joints of this handcrafted task light by Israeli industrial designer Asaf Weinbroom comprise strips of walnut veneer clamped round the oak base and head.

The lamp is part of a series of four designs combining wood with brass, copper and Corian that Weinbroom presented at an exhibition called Fervency during Jerusalem design week last month.

Giben has a flat baton in the middle like a wooden ruler joined by two wooden disks - one in light wood to match the stem and the other in a darker tone to match the base.

The Corian Bra lamp (above) features copper arms with the joints, head and clamp in Corian, while the Long light (below) has a clamp that's simply a wooden rod inside a brass tube.

Here are more details by Asaf Weinbroom:


I chose to design a series of table lamps because a table lamp is the most intimate lamp physically closest to the person using it.

In addition there are plenty of options for technical Joints and movement which were always a great source of inspiration for me.

For the Jerusalem design week exhibition "Fervency" currated by Tal Gur last month, I chose to design a series of four table lamps.

The series show tests and experiments of technologies, mechanisms and surprising combinations between wood and various materials.

Corian Bra table lamp is attached to a surface, a shelf or desk, with a wood screw. This lamp is a development of my earlier "Bra" version; I switched the brass pipes with copper pipes and added the corian. Materials: Ash wood, corian and copper pipes.

Long Light is an attached to surface lamp. I developed a clasp allowing a tight grip of the lamp to the surface due to the friction between the wood and the brass pipe. Materials: Maple wood and Brass pipes.

    These are beautiful, sleek and stylish lights. I love "Brown". The walnut veneer is aesthetically charming.
