Brits will be familiar with the iconic Smithfield market which is famous for raw meat! So it comes as a bit of surprise that something as drab as a wholesale market can act as a source of inspiration. But then again, God and designers work in mysterious ways! Jokes apart, we simply love the Smithfield Lamp designed by Jasper Morrison for Flos. The lamp borrows heavily from industrial techniques and is Morrison's take on something as mundane as a metal lamp shade that is usually found in the meat packing district. The Smithfield Lamp available in painted glossy black or white and will be exhibited at the Milan Design Fair.
