Attached are images of 2 versions of the Alar Table lamp. The Alar line comes in many other configurations: wall, floor, chandelier, etc (The double stemmed version was in the NY Times, but the others have not been published). I am also promoting a line of “Steel and Concrete” furniture (particularly the “EE” and “WF” line) which can be seen on my website. If you would like more information and/or images feel free to contact me.
Thank you for your time,
“The Alar line of handcrafted wall, table, ceiling, and floor lamps from the studio of Joshua Howe. While Howe’s furniture is minimal and meditative, his Alar lights have a graceful industrial attitude that evokes both botanical as well as machine-age forms.
At first glance, the fluid, bending stem of the double-stem floor lamp bring to mind nodding flowers. Upon closer inspection, the lamp heads reveal the meticulous workmanship involved: machined industrial steel (w/acid patina), copper tubing details, form a central core securing the bulb, which is encircled by four translucent, etched acrylic wings through which light glows. Every screw hole has been hand-tapped; each lamp head hand-assembled—the design possesses a dynamic tension created by the feeling that nothing more could be taken away, nothing more added, in these streamlined, cultivated works of art.”
