Monday’s quick start: Baby Barrel Lamp


A bit ashamed to say but New Duivendrecht a Dutch design label was totally unknown to me until last August when I visited the NY international Gift Fair. You remember I told you I came to the fair together with Jurianne, who was part of Tuttobene and Tuttobene was founded by Victor Le Noble who also is one of the designers behind New Duivendrecht.

Victor send me an email last weekend telling me about their latest product called the Baby Barrel Lamp designed by Nieuwe Heren… an I really like it!

The design of the first Barrel lamp was inspired by the aesthetics of WWI searchlights. Now more friendly but still a strong and sturdy shape that provides a steady source of light in any type of space. It is crafted out of wood, steel and concrete…. the combination of wood and concrete makes it very attractive for me and I  would probably place the Baby Barrel  lamp on a floor in a corner of my home.
