It was not purposely made to make it look like a skyscraper, but I decided to call it that way because the effect that the light gave to it in the dark reminded me of a modern skyscraper.
This lamp was made as a "companion" to the other dowel lamp I made a while ago, the Spiral Lamp. As you can see, they are very similar and the way I made it is almost the same one too. The only thing that changes is the way the squares are placed to create a different geometry.
I hope you like this lamp as much as I do, and if you do, please vote and don't forget to tell me what you think about it! :)
