Picture of Modern standing lamp

I opted to create a standing lamp with the connecting steel pipe as thin as possible. The lamp had to represent something elegant and unusual, with the use of modern lighting technology.

With the right tools this lamp is easy to make.

The total cost was around 25 dollar.
