Pair of 'Spacelamps' - Reclaimed and Re-Used Materials
Kuttlefish is currently not accepting orders. Feel free to browse our content and please check back soon!
A pair of lamps, each detailed in the same way. These make a great team and could look great at either end of a book shelf, for instance. These lamps are made with reused and recycled materials and inspired by 'mid-century' design, 'Close Encounters' and the Space Race.
- Each has 3 legs of salvaged bolts
- Fitted flexes with inline switches
- Standard UK plug with 3A fuse.
- 220mm tall
- 3w LED lamp & 3d printed translucent shades
- Salvaged Birch Plywood, salvaged oak & up-cycled glass jars
- 3d printed lamp fixing in responsible PLA plastic
It is important that these lamps are used only with low power LED bulbs. Conventional bulbs will be too hot for the reused glass jar and the 3d printed shades.
If you are buying this product to use outside of the UK, please contact me to arrange for the correct voltage LED bulb to be fitted...

My designs that take inspiration from the space capsules of science fiction and reality, cartoon UFOs and 'mid-century high-tech'. Cylindrical forms with glass cockpits, visible fixings, atomic and starburst styles...
I make lamps with a combination of re-cycled materials that would otherwise be wasted, and new parts that are 3d printed to form a connection between parts most efficiently. I find waste timber that can be used again to make the bodies of the lamps. Re-used glass jars enclose responsible, 3d printed, lamp-holders for energy efficient LEDs.
I avoid painted finishes, to reduce chemical use and the lamps are assembled with mechanical fixings, not glue, to make sure that lamps can be dismantled, ‘cradle to cradle’ style. My designs will not change the world by themselves but seek to illustrate how smaller scale production can produce genuinely individual items...
