The functional art and custom light fixture was inspired by an original work of art created by New Studio A.D. member, Melissa Roberts.

While in her studio preparing for an upcoming exhibition of her conceptually based works titled The Living Room, she found herself destroying the armature for a 48 inch tall teacup that had gone awry. As she reached down to retrieve what she had intended to discard in the recycling bin, she saw a potential second life for her teacup ‘mistake’ in a newly discovered floor lamp now sitting in front of her.
