A Lamp That Brings the Cosmos Indoors

This lamp is called Helios and seems to conjure celestial bodies in motion. The sun is a naked bulb, burning bright or barely glowing, depending on how you deploy the dimmer or position the 12-inch hand-spun brass dish that serves as a planetary lampshade — angled in front, it creates a full eclipse. Designed by Robert Highsmith, a co-founder of the Brooklyn-based Workstead studio, known for a spare, industrial aesthetic warmed by luxurious materials (they did the interiors of the Wythe Hotel in Williamsburg), the lamp’s luminous components hover above a 4-inch cube base, available in three types of stone: pale Italian Carrara, deeply veined green Connemara and creamy gray travertine.
