Featured for the first time at Thisispaper, Earnest Studio is a design practice founded by Rachel Griffin, a graduate of Washington University in St. Louis and the Design Academy Eindhoven. The studio has its headquarters in Rotterdam and fits perfectly well into Netherlands' design tradition.
Mill Table Lamp is one of the studio’s noted design, nominated for the German Design Award 2017.
This movable table lamp is constructed of just two components and maintains its position using balance. The design was inspired by the dexterity of the basic sphere, which can be easily noticed once admiring simple shape of a ball resting on a cone. This attractive, yet functional part creates an open joint that affords the lamp an exceptionally wide range of motion. The lamp uses energy efficient LEDs and is powered by a low-voltage USB connection.
