upswitch's reworked lamps
Designer Michael Hanley turns blenders, sewing machines and stacks of books into curious light sources.
As we all know from trying on clothes under terrifying fluorescent bulbs, lighting can make a huge difference to the mood in a room. Thankfully, Melbourne label Upswitch has designed a range of lamps that will lift your spirit and bring a cosy glow to any space – with some added artistic flair, to boot. Designer Michael Hanley combines an industrial and antique-style aesthetic in his pieces, turning blenders, sewing machines and stacks of books into light sources, and any side table into an art gallery.
