TJOKEEFE’s UV Lamps


The hardest thing about moving into your own space is choosing furniture worth keeping. TJOKEEFE strives to make decisions like these a little easier. Based in Michigan, TJ O’Keefe created his eponymous furniture and object design company under the credo of “integrity and efficiency of both design and manufacturing”. This principle comes through in their stark minimal designs and universal functionality. This time, TJOKEEFE brings us UV, a simple (yet complex) light sculpture. Inside an aluminium bar live ultraviolet LED’s that project themselves onto a nylon thread. This thread then reflects the light back, submitting an alluring glow. While best placed on a wall or in a corner, this lamp is sure to stand out anywhere.
