Work lamp is inspired by lighting used on construction sites adapted for a contemporary domestic environment. It serves as task, ambient or pendant lighting. The hand turned opulent bamboo contrasts with the industrial appearance of the steel cage designed to both protect the bulb whilst allowing a flood of ambient light to illuminate any workspace.
The lamp is designed as a pendant but does not have to be used as such, a simple three legged rest has been designed to support the lamp and hold it in a horizontal position if the user so desires. The idea is that when supplied with a long power cable with inline switch the lamp may be hung from its cord positioned in its rest or simply placed anywhere that requires illumination.

Liqui was first created by Cameron Fry while he was still studying at university so that he had a name to put on products that he was making for friends and family. Cameron went on to graduate in 2007 having been short listed for New Designer of the Year which lead to him being picked up by a well known London lighting company for freelance work. But his passion for design and a continued desire to create a unique brand soon lead him to set up his own studio workshop. Subsequently Cameron has worked on several projects with his father Martin an artist and graphic designer and with their combined skill sets they are now endeavoring to build Liqui into a multi-faceted design practice.
Liqui are a new design practice based in the UK who design and make innovative statement furniture and lighting. With their multi-disciplined approach they strive to create pieces that are in some way different to the norm - whether it's the materials that are used the combining of traditional with contemporary elements or the incorporation of graphic design into a 3-dimensional context. As far as possible they make things that have a minimum impact on the environment and this is often reflected in their choice of materials such as paper and cardboard. As well as an interesting range of products presently made by small batch production they also create bespoke pieces on commission.
