I think most things tend to look much better in pictures. Specially after we have had them or a while the novelty wears off.

Im going to the SOHO store on Friday and take a look.

I sort of like the IC. But the "description" by the designer sets a new high-water mark. I just can't tell whether it's for cringe-worthiness or parody.

Inspiration Behind the Design:

Michael Anastassiades attempts to encapsulate the movement of a juggler as he makes a ball move with ease and balances it at startling angles. The designer's love of industrial simplicity is showcased in these lights and how he likens the design to a juggling act in which both sphere and baton are skillfully balanced.

On the other hand, the letters 'IC' denote the identity code used to evaluate immigrants entering the UK. This component of balance also relates to the lives of these immigrants as they juggle to adjust to a new society and its demands.

In fact, any hesitation I have over the IC is that it may be too stylized and not serious enough as a lamp. The minimalist aesthetic complements our space and other things, though.


Out of interest, what swung you towards the IC rather than the Hase?

Opted for the simplicity. Didn't hurt that it is much less expensive.

I have the AJ and grasshopper, thry're great lamps and as Foo states they're directional. I like that for the situations they are in, I have a few Kaiser Idell lamps that I like a lot only downside is the 25w maximum which limits you to screw in LEDs if you want a decent amount of light. The quality is, in my opinion, above that of the grasshopper and right along side the AJ.

Have you looked Kalmar lamps? Workmanship is top notch. Would think they'd be right up your alley.

Fess up. We all know you really bought it to express your solidarity with Syrian refugees.
