McKenna pays homage to iconic lamps

One of the more creative designs to come out of this years International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) were Mark McKenna’s ‘Designer Emulation Kits’, which are basically DIY 9-volt LED lamps.

There are 5 kits, each being a mini appropriation that pays “sincerest homage to some of the greatest modern designers of our time”;

DEK1 - Ingo Maurer’s ‘Luccelino’

DEK 2 – Castiglioni’s ‘Ario”

DEK 3 – Sapper’s ‘tizio’

DEK 4 – Castiglioni’s ‘Toio’

DEK 5 – Phillipe Starcks ‘Miss K’

Now, with only 9-volts of power you to can play chess past your bedtime!
