Philip Crewe



The Task Lamp is handmade on the Isle of Wight in a limited run of just 12.

The idea for this product came from childhood memories of the designer, Phillip Crewe. His father, a keen classic car enthusiast, had used lamps of this style propped up under the bonnet whilst he fixed his cars.

With three meters of orange cable the lamp is not restricted to the nearest socket, the idea is to make a feature of the wire across the room or gathered into loops. It’s bright colour tone is a nod to electrical tools that you might typically use in a workshop.

The grip of the Task Lamp is made from agglomerated cork; this is a sustainable bi-product of the wine bottle cork making process: Waste cork is ground up and then formed into blocks. The blocks are bonded with steam, which releases the resin in the cork, so no additional chemicals are used. The block is then hand turned into the final shape and finished with beeswax polish..

The shade comes from reclaimed jars that have been frosted by Isle of Wight Studio Glass to defuse the light. This process brings out a natural greenness in the glass, which references the pieces of smooth glass often washed up on the Island's beaches.
