At first glance, it looks as if the lamp might fall forward under the weight of the shade. But it won’t: Hubert used a weight inside the hollow space of the stand for stability.

Using a sturdy rubber band to hold the two main pieces together eliminates the need for glue or screws, cutting down on manufacturing time and costs. The stretch and strength of the silicone mean that the band will last as long as the lamp itself.

Benjamin Hubert's Container Lamp Is A Case Study In Minimalist Assembly

Stylists have long promoted minimal design; now manufacturers do too. “If you can produce from less, you allow the materials to communicate the sensibilities of the product,” says Benjamin Hubert, who created this ceramic Container Lamp for Ligne Roset. As two early prototypes show, the lamp is a case study in ease of assembly: It’s just a shade, a base, a socket, and a cord. ($700, ligne-roset-usa.com)
