Revolve table lamp, final design stages

As the Revolve gets closer and closer to its first production run, it is getting better and better. At Bert Frank we find this happens a lot, often it's the problems we encounter that force us to find clever or unusual solutions. These can often turn into our favourite features and details.

On the Revolve for example it was the pull chain to operate the light. We didn't want to increase the size of the base in order to house a decent toggle switch and almost every other switch on the market induces no "moment of pleasure" so we were forced to look at alternatives. A little nod to the (very) 'old school' and a aesthetic as well as functional joy was found in the good old brass chain pull switch. We are in the process of making a custom chain weight to sit on the end of it and I hope you will agree it looks fantastic hanging down next to the brass stem.

The only thing left to do now is decide on the remaining two colours (back and white are a given) that we will offer this lamp in as standard. If you have any suggestions or requests let us know.
