Lighting designer Christopher Poehlmann is no stranger to Inhabitat or the International Contemporary Furniture Fair in New York City. We’ve long been a fan of Poehlman’s gorgeous, sculptural ‘New Growth’ lamps, which are lighting fixtures fashioned from recycled pipes into the shapes of tree branches. Although 2012 marks CP Lighting’s 18th year at the ICFF, the firm continues to produce exciting new eco-friendly furnishings for every new show, putting them high on our list of favorite designers. Poehlmann’s latest creation is this incredible tree-shaped floor lamp and dining room table combination that literally stopped us in our tracks. Like all of Poehlmann’s work, it’s hand-crafted from recycled pipes to produce a uniquely organic design piece.
CP Lighting’s New Growth line features recycled aluminum pipes sourced from local junk yards that are pieced together to create one-of-a-kind pieces that are as much art as they are functional. The lamp and table featured at this year’s ICFF combines these awesome lamps (fitted with energy-efficient LED lightbulbs) with a seamlessly-crafted combination piece that is perfect for any dining room. We can’t wait to see what Christopher pulls off next year!
