This fun adjustable lamp by MEJD Studio was inspired by water wells, and works via a simple wooden crank mechanism which raises and lowers an internal light bulb when turned. It functions similarly to the bucket in a traditional well as the electrical cable of the lightbulb serves as the rope. The glass housing of the lamp has a gradient finish, with the upper portion being clear glass and the lower portion obfuscated.
As a result of this varying translucency, the Well Lamp can essentially be dimmed by simply lowering the lightbulb into its glass enclosure. MEJD have designed the Well Lamp in two iterations with differing gradient finishes: the first ranging in opacity with a frosted lower portion, and the second with a deep blue tint at the base.
MEJD is one of our favourite design studios here at Homeli and we’ve already featured two of their playful designs in the past. These are the Street Collection and the Twist Me! bookcase — which incidentally is also adjustable via a primitive wooden mechanism.
