The Herston self-balancing lamp is the creation of former Dyson designer Oliver Chambers and his partner Greta. The duo’s mission was to create a product that combines the beauty, balance and care of mid-century classic design with the needs of the modern world – and they’ve smashed it out of the park with their first foray as Herston.
When it comes to aesthetics and function, it’s easy to see why people have backed the Herston lamp so hard. The innovative design employs carefully concealed conducting elements complemented perfectly by hand-crafted wood to create sleek, structured form without the mess of cables you might expect from something so intricate. The LED light makes the lamp super versatile – so you can keep it bright for tasks or dim it down for some sultry mood lighting. As for the balancing act, a unique counter-balance mechanism ensures that the lamp can be adjusted quickly and smoothly – in one swift action.
