IDÉEAL Lamp

Designed by IntoConcrete.

Chicago based design studio IntoConcrete has made a fantastic line of products from what most people would consider a surprising material. Concrete is not a material you can shape after it is in its final form such as wood or plastic. It is a material that must come out of the form near perfection. This makes producing it quite difficult, and of coarse, the weight of concrete creates its own limitations. These lights are so impressive to us because they deny their weight as a factor of design. The beautiful smooth natural concrete finish draws your attention to the material. What a wonderful example of great lighting design. These lights are reasonably expensive for most middle class homes, but we think $500 is well worth it.
