Portal Lamp by Mark Kinsley and Leigh Staten with Karice for Lake + Wells

Mark Kinsley and Tamera Leigh Staten of Lake + Wells, together with Karice, have created Portal, a lamp that’s neither a sconce nor a floor lamp, and yet it it can act as both.

The designers mention, “the elongated form and reflective, polished brass core nod to the mirror as a literary object of magic, a portal to other worlds.”

Each floor lamp is machined from a single block of solid aluminum, refined by artisans, anodized, and then assembled with a hand-polished brass mirror.
