Gaffer’s Bounce Lamp

By Andrew Liszewski

Oh look, it’s the first official designer lamp of the new year! Like I’ve mentioned in the past the lamp seems to be a preferred target for designers and like any good lamp this one combines good looks with great functionality.

Created by motion picture gaffer Edwared Cohen (the lighting/electrical people) and sculpted by David Johnson the bounce lamp projects a 20-watt floodlight onto a sanded polycarbonate surface that reflects back a soft, diffuse light. While most lights use a bright, direct source that can cause eyestrain the bounce lamp produces a gentle illumination with no glare. It stands about 13 inches tall which makes it ideal for us on a desk or table but will probably have your co-workers asking you what’s with the sailboat?

The bounce lamp is currently available from Hammacher Schlemmer for $99.95.

  • Nagga

    nice idea, but ‘sculpted’ is a big word

  • Korinthian

    Why does it look like a slipper with a sail?

  • DSW

    It puts out a very soft white light. Ideal for the bedroom etc.

    I don’t think it would be good as a desk lamp since the light is so diffuse.
