Saw Lamp
       
     
 Paying homage to our ancestral furniture makers, Saw is at once sculpture and functional furniture. The solid wood table contains several stylized “saw cuts” into which the nickel-plated lamp post is inserted, each providing a different intensity of light or no light at all when placed in the resting slot. In this age of convenience and technology, Saw hearkens back to a time when the lighting and dousing of a lamp was a more purposeful act, a domestic ritual punctuating the beginning or the end of an evening.
