Mother Nature’s designs are the ultimate inspiration. The “Pod Lamp,” which resembles the flower casing of a Queen Palm tree, is a beautifully textured floor and table lamp with an ambient LED lighting effect. Cook Island born Ron Crummer envisioned the design when he discovered a fibrous palm casing nestled amongst roadside shrubs on one of his morning walks. Like the Pod Lamp, many of his designs are inspired by the abundance of nature in his upbringing and often feature a modern twist. The handcrafted Pod Lamp, along with all of Crummer’s designs, is made in New Zealand. Crummer’s goal is to produce well-designed objects that are kind to the planet, produce minimum waste, and tell a story. Crummer is a self-taught designer with qualification in a Bachelor of Arts degree and a diploma in interior design. View more of his work here.
