We found a funny review on the net that said this product is perfect for those interesting in boxing even though it would take some pretty small fists to “manage” the tiny lamp. No matter what auxiliary use you may find for it
The Nymph is a rather unusual luxury lamp in the shape of an insect in its nymph life stage (right after it hatches from the egg). If having a multi-legged insect as a lamp is somehow appealing to you maybe the $2600 price tag will encourage you to give it a second thought.
There’s something just so right about the design of this minimal lighting fixture from Japan. While it sits there on your tabletop it casts a dramatic shadow of numeric shapes across the surface of your desk and walls.
The Nymph was designed by Brooklyn-based interior and furniture design company Site Specific Design. According to the designers “Body made of a two-part fiberglass mold- white lacquer finish. Light covers made of Corian. Legs 5/8” hollow steel tubes each curve is unique to its location- white powder coat finish.”
It seems even with the modern LED light technology designers just cannot let go of old designs. Good Night Eileen by Christine Birkhoven is based on the archaic hand-lamp which was used for illumination moving from one room to another at home in the dark.
When completely closed it measures just 2.75? tall (and looks like a high tech stapler). Open it up and it can reach up to almost 22? in height. This beautiful design doesn’t come cheap the price is $595 USD but if you want something cool and elegant you have to pay the price.
