I love that you can use this lamp on a desk surface or mount it to the wall as a sconce with a single screw. Made of white oak and finished with 100% Tung Oil, this lamp kind of reminds me a bit of a candlestick. It also comes in a black finish.

A rapid-fire postmodernist piss-take, the brief but striking main titles for Kroll Show are as much a mission statement for actor Nick Kroll’s sketch comedy show as they are a checklist of pop cultural touchstones. In dozens of dubstepping blasts, TGIF broadcasting, famous landmarks, reality television, blockbuster cinema, advertising, junk food, and corporate America are all roasted in a pithy cavalcade of Kroll-ified logos, brands, and signage. Full of fine print easter eggs for pause-pressers, the sequence strobes at the audience and ends before they know what hit them.
Jonathan Krisel, Kroll Show series director and executive producer, describes the process behind the sequence:

Cate & Nelson’s idea behind Netframe was to create a piece of furniture that consumes as little material as possible while maintaining a high comfort. “In order to succeed with this challenge we had to turn everything upside down in the development process.
