A lamp grows in Brooklyn – well at least this one did. The Branch Lamp, which we spotted at the Model Citizens showcase during New York Design Week, is made of an actual branch that fell during the tornado that struck NY last year. Designed by Harris Hine for Reclaiming Brooklyn, the thought-provoking fixture consists of a series of metal shims, a spun aluminum shade, and a cord, which can actually be customized and placed on any piece of found wood.
