The Angler lamp was one of my second year projects. A gimmicky yet fun lamp which was designed to wobble around to encourage the user to interact with it. The lamp creates an interesting interaction between user and product through the ‘switch’ of the lamp which involves the user tying the shoe lace like wires together. The wobble/height of the light is adjustable. 

The base of the lamp was made out of lasercut acrylic (Glass was intended for stabilisation) and cibatool (artificial wood) which was routed out on a modela. The adjustment mechanism is just two brass pipes (That I acquired from a model shop) and one smaller one slides into the larger one. The head of the lamp is made of a 3D printed base with holes which I then threaded piano wire into.
