The Boero Lamp

A minimalist table lamp inspired by rural water containers.

Born in 1993, Sicily-based designer Natale Li Vecchi has already won two international contests to design products for Italian brand Formabilio and has exhibited his work in Milan and Florence. His latest design is a self-produced lamp that features both new technology and traditional techniques. Minimalist and practical, the Boero Lamp has a distinctive silhouette. That’s because the design draws inspiration from an unlikely source: containers used in the countryside to provide water to hens. Even the product’s name alludes to the rural inspiration, as boero means “peasant” in Dutch.

Designed with function in mind, the table lamp features an 180° rotating handle at the top. Thus, the user can easily move the light around the room. The cotton and linen cable measures 300 cm, which enhances the mobility of the lamp further. More than just a contemporary lighting design that focuses on function, Boer is also beautifully made. It features a biodegradable PLA body made with a 3D printer and a hand-finished surface completed with traditional sanding techniques. Over the course of a few cycles of hand-sanding, the surface of the lamp becomes perfectly smooth and free of any flaws. Assembled by hand, Boer works with one LED bulb to illuminate living spaces.

The designer has introduced the Boero Lamp at the 4th edition of the Source Self-Made Design, International Self-Produced Design Exhibition in Florence. Currently available only in Europe, the hand-finished Boero Lamp comes in a white finish at a price of around $500. Photographs© Natale Li Vecchi.
