Three things inspire me when thinking of new design:
-something special for all ages
My lamp concept has come about from a few different inspirations. One person I have found to be an interesting designer is the late John Britten. A lamp designed by him was gifted to my father about 25 years ago. I love this lamp, it is simple, no fuss, but gives out a very soothing, gentle light. I like the solid base and easy clean, bulb change ability. I believe every part of a lamp should be considered, right down to the plug, switch on/off ability, selecting the best materials to compliment.
