Wendell Castle, Table Lamp I, USA, 1993

Father of the art furniture movement, Wendell Castle was a sculptor, designer, and educator for more than four decades, influencing the art and design world with his graceful and whimsical pieces. His work has led to the development of handcrafted, modern designer furniture as a major art form and his name is revered above all others in the field. His bold pieces are crafted from rare and beautiful hardwoods, plastics, veneers, and metals in a timeless contemporary style. His expression of color and exotic materials are synonymous with the Wendell Castle name.

Table Lamp I features Castle’s classic “pod” shaped legs rendered in carved and polychromed wood. The hammered copper shade has a subtle, warm patina that compliments the slight purple case of the polychrome shown on the base. The bold, biomorphic form is as much freestanding sculpture as it is a functional lamp.
