Nicholas Furrow Honey Jar Lamp, Brooklyn Designs [1]

Nicholas Furrow [2]was showing a few other items at BKLYN Designs [3], aside from the strainer lamp, and we’d light to show you another one that caught our eye, and nose: The Honey Jar Lamp [2]. It is part of a series of experiments from Nicholas that involve the use of fruits and vegetables and light to obtain some interesting results.


“Creating a “green” lamp was also a main concern in the design process. I wanted to work with clean, simple, organic materials, that offered a tactile contrast to each other” he said in regards to his inspiration for the Honey Jar Lamp [2]. The lamp is a simple glass jar covered with crude unfiltered beeswax hung at an angle with simple brass fittings and a chain. The lamp gives off a nice warm yellow light, while at the same time also engaging the sense of smell by emitting a nice aroma of honey as it warms up.

The Honey Jar Lamp was one of the many interesting designs at last weekend’s BKLYN Designs [3] show. We look forward to see what else comes out of next year’s show.
