Dama by Tom Allen
Published on October 3, 2012
Dama is a table lamp designed by Tom Allen for Barcelona eco-design company Lucirmás. Made from upcycled, recyclable and sustainably certified materials, the lamp was first previewed at the Salon Internazionale del Mobile in Milan 2012 at Superstudio Piú but has now been officially launched.
Inspired and made from beautiful, 5 litre glass vessels (commonly used for storing wine or oil in Italy), their charm gives that warm feeling you get observing an old, masterful Italian cook, craftfully preparing a delicious meal. Perfect as a table lamp for a variety of settings, users can easily remove the glass ‘lampshade’ with the original handle, which makes cleaning an easy process. The beech timber base is PEFC certified (http://www.pefc.org/) ensuring both the designer and producer’s intention to practice sustainable design.
The lamp is entirely handmade in Barcelona with the highest attention to detail and craftmanship. Each lamp is personally numbered. Using a low energy Plumen 001 lightbulb (which has a lifetime of 8 years), Dama is sure to be the talking point in your home, restaurant or hotel.
