little man is sculptural fluorescent lamp paying homage to analog toys of the past – metal tonka trucks and colorful wooden blocks – robust and timeless, passed down from generation to generation.

Spun from solid ash, the red sphere is shaped on a lathe, then hollowed out to create the inside cavity. Finished with a durable laquer that will stand the test of time.

a balance of playfulness and precision, all of it’s parts are custom fabricated by talented detroit fabricators. only 6 of these will ever be produced.

we engineered the blue cylinder, red ball, and black block to hold all of the electronics.
