Editor’s note: This is a guest post from Donald M. Rattner.

Coil Lamp by Chicago designer Craighton Berman blurs the traditionally distinct elements of shade, stand and wiring by enveloping the entire fixture in a continuously wrapped, 100 foot long power cord. The cord, which is draped over a lasercut clear acrylic frame, makes the lamp appear to float in space, endowing it with a quality of weightlessness suggestive of light itself.

The standard kit comes with the acrylic lamp stand and a socket. You can either provide your own power cord in the color of your choice, or purchase a kit with an orange, green, yellow or white cord here.

Coil Lamp is in the permanent collection of the Art Institute of Chicago.
