Planet Lamp - Australian design icon

Always the collector, but this week a burnt orange Australian design classic available in time to be a part of the "ORANGE" exhibition had my name on it. It is in excellent condition, a handy local pickup from a very passionate mid century enthusiast living just a stones throw from the Chancellor and Patrick Iggulden House. The Iggulden House was the home of the John Iggulden, the brother of the Studio K lamp designer Bill Iggulton. Bill lived in Balcombe Park Lane in Beaumaris. The Studio K task lamp featured in the exhibition STILL09.

Studio K task lamp is an Australian design icon designed in 1962 by Bill Iggulden for his company Planet Lighting.
