Line Lamp


Inspired by a gesture drawing, movement is embedded in the form and operation of this piece. Made of brass tubes, cloth cord, and LEDs, the lamp registers a different pattern of light every time a bar is shifted. Each new shape and shadow records an impression, just as the line drawing records the path of our hand. The language of repetition allows this lamp to be customized, adaptable to multiple surroundings.

Who is Elish Warlop 

Drawing on myriad skills honed throughout a diverse career, Brooklyn-based lighting and furniture designer Elish Warlop seeks to explore the paradox of motion within stillness. This idea manifests itself in her creations, which on first glance appear simple and elegant, but on closer inspection reveal more complex construction meant to draw the viewer in. A licensed architect with a B.A. from Cornell University, Warlop garnered two AIA awards for Studio B Architects (a Colorado based architecture firm) where she began her career before moving on to construction management and her own company, EFW Construction. Looking to take the next step in her career trajectory she decided to pursue an MFA in furniture design at the Rhode Island School of Design in 2010. With this newfound knowledge she launched Elish Warlop Design Studio and set about merging creativity and design with construction and experimentation. As Warlop moves from research and sketches to model making and workable prototypes, new ideas and directions tend to emerge along the way. She finds great joy in this process and trusts it to guide her where she needs to go.
