It all started with a birthday present I made for my wife, a bedside lamp from a vegetable steamer. We were amazed by how good of a lamp it is, being able to open and close and also, because the bulb is off center I allowed it to be rotated so that the light could be aimed at a 360 degrees circle. Plus it created amazing light textures around it and projected them all over the room at night. She could aim it right at her book and let me sleep in the dark.After that we decided to take it seriously and work on designing it as a product. We sought and found the perfect steamer for the job, and made it so it can be installed easily, have a tilt that's connected to its rotation so it can be aimed anywhere, it has a reflector and a small handle to help with opening and closing and also has a long life energy efficient xenon bulb that gives a warm light color tone. We even filed a patent on the three dimensional aperture shade, wrote an illustrated guide book and designed its packaging.The SteamLight Simple is the most basic of our models, a wallmount with a polished finish and a simple plastic cord and switch.Some technicalities:* Sizes: 5.5" diameter when closed, 9.75" when openThe base is 1.75" wide and the lamp's length from the wall is 3.5" when open and 4.5" when closed.* supplied with a low voltage 20W xenon bulb that is twice more efficient in its energy use than a regular incandescent (equivalent to a 40W incandescent) and has a longer life span of 10,000 hours.* To be mounted on a wall with four (supplied) screws.* All electrical components are UL recognized.* Packed in an elegant recycled box, fit for a present.* The lamp is hand made and signed.A few feedbacks we got for the Steamlight Simple:"Just being exposed to such beautiful artwork is breathtaking! Great customer service and super smooth transaction!! I love them, Can you tell?""Prompt shipping, good communication, professional, and the lamp is of the highest quality- amazing lamp; I just love it!!!!!""I loved the first one so I had to get another one for the other side of the bed."
