Peter Bristol has created a table lamp derived from the standard and utilitarian materials, dimensions, and parts used to build homes in America.
Says Bristol, "For better or worse, construction materials, methods, and dimensions are quite homogenized in the United States. From the 2×4 wall studs to the cheap light switches, it seems that when building a wall, location is really the only decision left to make."
"Flipping on the American Standards Lamp is as routine as unlocking the door." The lamp creates diffuse light and also provides an easily accessible extra power outlet.
