Doba Lamp

Designed by Porto-based studio Gud Conspiracy, Doba is a lamp made adjustable by an old-fashioned Portuguese technique to wind skeins of wool using a tool called a 'dobadoura'. The lamp's hardwood frame mimics the tool, with notches guiding the rich red chord around the upper part of the frame and protrusions lower down around which the chord can be wrapped. Loosen the lamp's chord and choose the height and angle you want to direct the light, then wrap and secure the chord below. More images below (I think they describe the lamp better than I can...)
