Classic Midcentury Design Gets an Update

Light up your home with these dazzling new lamps and their vintage prequels.

Monday, August 01, 2011

Each No. 303 lamp by David Weeks—whose lights you may have spotted in Saks, at the W New York Hotel, or on Gossip Girl—is made to order in the designer's Brooklyn studio, with three steel arms that pivot like microphone stands.
Price available upon request;

One of a series of lithe, insectlike lights he designed in the early 1950s, Serge Mouille's three-legged MO1 floor lamp was meant to have the same sense of movement as a kinetic sculpture, like a functional version of an Alexander Calder mobile.
