reddish studio's 'louis 900' is a lamp made of broken antique furniture legs

israeli product design company reddish studio creates louis 900 — a series of table lamps made of broken antique furniture legs from various eras and origins. a simple set of actions transforms each antique leg into a contemporary light fixture. although they share the same minimalist structure, the different antique styles add their own story to the final design of each lamp. reddish studio‘s louis 900 is completely made of dark antiqued wood of varying dimensions.
