In their most unkempt forms, wood, concrete and steel are sturdy materials. When you can manage to combine the qualities of those materials with an aesthetic form, the results are often gorgeous. Such is the case with New Duivendrecht's Barrel Lamp.
Inspired by the design of an industrial spotlight, the lamp is a conceptual juxtaposition. Rugged and imprecise inspirations are passed though a meticulous and modern filter. Traditionally tough things have been remade for the domestic life. But more than anything else, it simply looks amazing. And for a cool €650 ($780), it can be yours. [New Duivendrecht via Design-Milk]
