After studying product design at Leeds University, British designer Charlie Bowles joined Original BTC, the lighting company founded by his father, Peter Bowles. The London Table Lamp (2010) was Charlie’s first solo lighting design. This lamp carries on his family’s tradition “to design and produce lights that you are instantly at home with, that will fit easily and comfortably for many years to come.” Suspended from the polished chrome-plated steel arm and base, the aluminum shade is available in black, grey or yellow. A braided cotton-covered cord matching the shade color is woven through the curved chrome arm for a neatly tailored finish. Every light by Original BTC has this braided cord, which was originally designed by Peter Bowles, who snipped the cord off the family iron when it gave him an idea for something better than an ordinary plastic cord. (That’s one way to get out of ironing.) Bulb (not included): 40W/GLS/E26. UL Listed. Made in England.
