‘Angle’ table lamps and ‘Triangle’ pendant lamps by NZ-based Workroom Design

I am LOVING LOVING LOVING these new lights by NZ-based design team Workroom Design.   HOW great are they!?  In actual fact the ‘Angle’ table lamp has been around for a while, but the lovely ‘Lean’ floor lamp and ‘Triangle’ pendant lamp are brand new – launched just last month!  I heart them massively.  So rare to see new freestanding lamps designed and manufactured locally!  With their quirky scandi aesthetic and *Wallpaper magazine-esque styling, it’s only a matter of time before these sweet designs hit the bigtime.

Workroom Design was established in 2008 by father and daughter design team Douglas and Rebecca Snelling.   They also run a fabulous little retail store in Auckland called Douglas & Bec (I have covered once before), which stocks their own designs and other like-minded finds – including, I notice, pieces by  South Australian design darlings Daniel : Emma!

Most excitingly, Douglas & Bec have just launched a fantastic online store – so those of us across the ocean can get in on the action!

All the beautiful lamps pictured here are handcrafted in NZ using American Ash timber, spun aluminium shades in a range of colours, and beautiful woven fabric flex cords.  Need.  Want.  Now.

    Thanks for sharing, these are beautiful, simple and artful. I love when designers put thought into every aspect of a piece – those lovely woven cords make all the difference.

    Great minimalist aesthetic! The shiny yellow inspires me to design some fun table lamps in bright powder-coated colours. Cheers :)

    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this website. It’s simple, yet effective.
    A lot of times it’s very difficult to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appearance. I must say that you’ve done a great job with this.
    In addition, the blog loads super fast for me on Chrome.
    Exceptional Blog!

    Normally I don’t learn post on blogs, but I would like to say that this write-up very pressured me to try and do it! Your writing style has been amazed me. Thanks, quite nice article.
