Magic Lamp - a tribute to Melbourne's coffee progression and obsession.

Melbourne has long been an innovator in the growing global coffee scene. An interesting industry built around the addictive nature of caffeine and it's effects on the human condition. I find the coffee industry to be a constant subject of my thoughts and this table lamp is my comment on it's highly consumable nature and its relationship with Melbourne. Hand crafted from two types of South Australian limestone, The Magic Lamp has a fire in its belly, just like that received after your morning espresso hit.

Hugh Altschwager is a sixth generation farming son from South Australia’s Limestone Coast whose upbringing saw him splitting his spare time between the ocean and the workshop. After studying Architecture and working in construction management, he merged his previous experiences and passions to form Inkster Maken in 2013. Influenced by both the Australian environment and his Nordic heritage, Inkster Maken utilises locally sourced, unprocessed natural materials to create long lasting products with a timeless aesthetic. Inkster Maken’s lighting products are created using turned South Australian limestone and a variety of timbers. All products are designed and hand crafted by Hugh in Melbourne, Victoria.
