Multi-function Lamp

Multifunction lamp
Multi-function lamp, clock,
and cigarette lighter

Purchased at Fireside Antiques,
Bowie, Maryland
January 2003

This combination lamp/clock/cigarette lighter is multi-tasking its little heart out. From the Venetian blind shade down to the working cigarette lighter in the receiver, all its features still work (and I've got a burn in my palm to prove it). The only thing it doesn't do is function as a telephone.

This wonderful lamp is the antithesis of the major tenet of Bauhaus design: form follows function. This one's got great form, but its function ran off into three different directions.
