Quentin de Coster’s Argand is a contemporary table lamp that revisits the “wick-lift” mechanism common in oil lamps from the eighteenth century.
Details: Composed of a pink gold plated brass base, a LED module, and a borosilicate glass cylinder. Turn the knob and a rack reveals or hides the mobile tube incorporating the light source, three LED strips.
“The name Argand refers to the Swiss physicist Ami Argand who invented the burner with double airflow and cylindrical wick in 1783” says de Coster.
