Atomic Pile Lamps

Design & ArchitectureJesse WalkerComment

These Atomic Pile Lamps are my partner Mark's most recent design offspring. The stacks are made from salvaged hygrometers (instruments for measuring moisture in soil) he bought for $15 each at a salvage yard. He took them apart, had the aluminum stripped and polished, then added custom steel bases. The 11" bulbs give them a nice Frankenstein's lab flair. This is what the hygrometers looked like before the project.
