Three Wise Men are a group of lovely wooden lamps [1] handcrafted into different sizes and shapes. Designed by Hong-Kong-born, UK-based Samuel Chan for his own brand Channel [2], they give off a warm and focused shine thanks to the use of an E27 LED bulb. The lamps were crafted from solid American white oak and American black walnut and given a slender bottle-like top. The series takes its name from the group of men who (according to the Bible) visited Jesus [3] when he was born—we however spotted them hanging at this year’s Milan Design Week.
