304 Lamp by Nick Beens

One of our highlights of the Design Academy Eindhoven graduation show is the 304 series of lamps by Dutch designer Nick Beens.  Made from modular sections of standard 304 metal tubes powder-coated in a variety of colours, the lamp can be configured in multiple ways to suit different needs and to create different ambience.  Stylish, functional and fun at the same time, we can't ask for more from the humble metal pipe.

Nick Beens is a 2017 graduate of Design Academy Eindhoven (Man and Activity department) and the 304 lamp is part of his graduation project.
