Our Edison lamps combine recycled timber with edgy industrial materials, which reflect New Zealand’s commercial and agricultural history.

They'll enhance your room and stimulate discussion.

This Edison table lamp has been created from an old carpenter's wood block plane made by the German manufacturer, Henry Böker, a company established in 1869.

The Böker brand can still be seen distinctly on the cutting blade. This plane also has the Boker stamp on the toe end of the block.

It's impossible to know when the plane was brought to New Zealand, but tools like this were carefully looked after by their owners with many, like this one, bearing their initials - J.P. - in the wood.
  • The dimensions of the lamp base are: length 26cm, width 7cm, height with bulb, 20cm.

The plane has been cleaned, lightly sanded to remove years of grime, and hand finished with natural beeswax.

I have tried to retain a sense of the history of the tool by leaving surface marks while cleaning and polishing the beautiful wood.

Each plane comes with a written history.

The vintage E27 40W screw fit Edison bulb, which comes with your lamp, has a life of about 1500 hours and can be easily changed for any number of similar bulbs that are  easily available in New Zealand.

Each lamp is tagged and tested to ensure electrical safety. It has a long lead and an in-line switch.

We recommend a maximum 40W bulb.

Your Edison lamp has a felt pad on the base to protect any surface you choose to put it on.
