Introducing the Derome, a new table lamp from British studio Pinch. Named after the 1970s French artist Derome who specialized in silhouette paintings, the lamp is available in a dark stained tulip wood or a lighter ash finish. The shape of the Derome light strikes a strong silhouette, contrasting with the ambient light quality it generates. The dark Derome base is turned from solid tulip wood, and is stained blue/black and oiled, closely matching the dark tones of the blue/black linen shade. Meanwhile, the ash Derome base has a white-oiled ash base and an ash veneer shade, which when switched off has a chalky matt finish and when lit, casts a warm, pinkish glow. The lights are supplied with a black or copper colored weave flex and a cylindrical touch-sensitive dimmer.
Founded in 2004, Pinch is a collaboration between husband and wife team Russell Pinch and Oona Bannon, who work from their studio and showroom space in Clapham, London.
