another vintage hack from a discontinued product, the peter shelving. alex turned it into a sleek floor lamp as a birthday gift.
"this is an old (1995) hack and the shelf 'peter' (first pix below) is discontinued for a few years now.
anyway, i shortened the 'ladder' (the side unit) and got rid of all runs but the lowest two. The head of the lamp consists of aluminum spare parts and a halogen lamp. The base is a slab of granite."
