This is the kind of steampunk I like. Almost everything at least LOOKS like it has a purpose in the object.
This is awesome! Do want!
Think again. Go watch David Lynch’s “Dune” and have your report on my desk by 8:00 am tomorrow.
Looks like it belongs on the set of David Lynch’s Dune. That’s a compliment.
Very nice art, I wish stuff like that would be sold in stores
What, the movie where 19-th century social and political constructs exist side-by-side with high technology, but said technology also involves knife fights (to say nothing of the book’s flapping-wing flying machines that didn’t make it into the movie)?
Maybe I’m missing some nuance of steampunk (is finished oak a requirement for every steampunk piece?), but I tend not to think the two aesthetics are mutually exclusive.
I agree with the poster who said it brings to mind something that would be in Peter Lynch’s “Dune”.
This is the sort of thing so gorgeous that it makes me want to build a special room so that I would have the space to craft the perfect desk just so that I could set that lamp atop it. Of course, then I would have just the PERFECT lighting with which to analyze all of the bills that I didn’t pay while constructing my “lamp room”.
these were over $15000 in 2007.
hand made bulbs too, so if one goes – tough luck.
