i have to admit that when i heard about 'tube top' i did not expect to see this elegant but not overly feminine lamp. designer Peter Stathis once again amazed me with this beautiful lamp for Pablo. this lamp consists of only 3 components: an acrylic base, a slip-on fabric shade, and a metal harp for holding the bulb. they can be snapped aprt for recycling later on. this is a great example of pure beauty, pure design, and pure innovation. the base comes in clear and charcoal; the shade comes in white and charcoal. available @ 2modern for $100US.
