Okay, before I say anything about this fixture that Christopher Moulder has designed, just remember that I love halogen and incandescent sources, and I know their places. Meet Christopher Moulder’s Shade lamp:
First and foremost, the Shade fixture uses 28 of the 10W halogen Festoon lamps, for a total of about $83 bucks in lamps alone. I am sure that this lamp also isn’t a “value-priced” piece, either. It does come in three shade colors, and it only needs the single lead down from the receptacle for power.
It’s a very interesting design, I mean that! If you’ve ever burned the crap out of yourself on a little halogen minilamp, you can imagine how much heat this thing must output – and since it’s got 28 lamps at 10W each, and if you can add or multiply, you know that the Shade fixture has a 280W power consumption.
Chris, this is a darned cool lamp. Why not utilize something other than halogen?
FYI, check out Christopher Moulder‘s other works, because they are all extremely lovely designs.
