Are we not all explorers, mining our way in the world around us? With his M Lamp, designer David Irwin was inspired by the archetypal miner's lamps of 19th century North East England. David's version, though, brings environmentally astute technology to the aesthetics and function of these historical icons. Powered by a rechargeable Lithium long-life battery, the M Lamp's LED light source is rated to last 50,000 hours, for up to 2,000 charging cycles with no loss in performance. Sleek, portable and endlessly usefulÑfrom late-night work to reading in bed. Light the way!

“Each collection is highly conversational and a big part of that conversation is rooted in the product's function,” says Shant Madjarian of Brooklyn-based Juniper Design. Shant left a successful career in finance to explore his creative side and hasn’t looked back since. “I am especially fascinated by the nostalgia and storyline told by the iconic design objects of the 20th century,” he recently told the design publication New York Spaces. “It is quite literally the history of human progress told in the form of beautiful objects. I was inspired and wanted to be one small piece of that storyline.”
Early on, Shant crossed paths with independent designer David Irwin and together they conceived the breakthrough M Lamp, an industrially influenced design that set the tone for future projects. At the same time came the collaboration with Peter Bristol on the Thin series, which positioned the company as a risk-taker in matters of design and engineering. “That being said, we don't see ourselves as pioneers. Brooklyn has exploded over the past five years as a center of design,” he adds. “Everyone has their unique edge. It is an exciting time for the design industry.”
