The Working Title table lamp is the epitome of a table lamp. An elegant expression of a classic design archetype in hand-polished aluminium. Finessed with an added functionality – a dimmer button to let you set the mood or focus fully on the object of your attention.

For designer Harri Koskinen, it was the ideal brief. Design the ultimate table lamps of table lamps. Something that would work at home and at the same time, feel at home at work. Given Koskinen’s natural proclivity for simple shapes driven by functionality, the challenge involved creating the most convenience with the least amount of extraneous elements.

“I always try to achieve simplicity and universality,” says Koskinen. “Quality pieces made with honest materials that could fit into any setting,
any culture.”

With the Working Title Desk Lamp, Koskinen started with the idea of a small sculpture for a table. There were three basic components: a base, a stem and a shade. The question was how to create a harmonious composition with all the elements together as an entity? “To tie it all together I chose a monochromatic material solution: hand-polished aluminium. It makes the lamp more elegant. The smooth surface is pleasing to the eye and to the touch. The circular shape of the base is reflected in the shape of the shade, with a flexible, swivel stem connecting the two.”

In an ever-changing urban lifestyle, how do you address the different types of lighting needed for different spaces? As Koskinen sees it, “The world is in transition. The spaces where we live and work are more fluid than fixed. I wanted a multi-functional lamp for any type of hybrid space. Also in terms of the lighting itself. I added a dimmer function to the design so people can use it to focus on work or to create a nice atmosphere by their bedside. The light source is LED, using the latest energy-efficient technology.”

For &tradition Brand Manager Martin Kornbek Hansen, the solution is iconic. “We always look for a timeless design with a simple aesthetic. Something
classic yet contemporary. Koskinen surpassed our expectations with this beautiful composition of elements that come together like a sculpture. The hand-finished aluminium makes it subtle and sophisticated. Add to that a dimmer – unique to typical table lamps – and you have the ultimate embodiment of convenience in a chic little solution.”
