Chicago-based husband and wife design team, Lake and Wells, launch a new high end, hand-crafted table lamp, Faaro.
Faaro is an artisan-crafted table lamp inspired by and named after the fire and glow of a lighthouse (from Spanish faro). It features a mouth-blown glass shade with a wood-grain-like texture created from the mold process which subtly obscures a glowing filament bulb. The glass sits atop a solid cast concrete base, separated by a mirror-polished plate which transitions the two materials together. Faaro is completely made in the US, assembled with UL listed components, and finished with a cloth braided cord.
The three elements of Faaro were developed with three different artisans, each one hand-picked for their mastery of a particular material. The result of this iterative development and collaboration is a uniquely hand-formed, but simultaneously precise design.
