Elegantly minimal with its chic grey marble base, this table lamp is an apt companion for the state-of-the-art TR Bulb, an LED sphere of light developed by Danish brand Menu. With the globe constructed from creamy opal glass, designer Tim Rundle fashions the inner structure in aluminum to draw heat away from the LED and allow the bulb to maintain its optimum temperature.
Designed for longevity and fully dimmable, this TR Bulb version brings warmly even illumination to desk or table.

"It's about creating aesthetically pleasing designs that evoke true feelings,” Menu founder Bjarne Hansen told the online magazine Lonny, “as well as improving processes in people's daily lives.” Ranging from tabletop objects to bath fixtures to lighting and furniture, the Danish brand’s pursuit of "soft minimalism" involves collaborations with designers from all over the world. The company’s guiding spirit is a quest for functional originality—with each product having either a new purpose, incorporating a new material or utilizing a new production method.
Menu is just as dedicated to responsible manufacturing as it is innovation. Working to locate new partners in developing countries around the world, the company searches out local factories or small private co-operations to turn out high quality goods and also provide a better economic foundation for the people involved in that production. "We’re passionate about design, new materials and clever details," say the folks at Menu, "and we dream about making a difference."
