The new Vessel Lamp by Mark Kinsley and Tamera Leigh Staten for Link Design Solutions is a rebirth of human coming together by capturing the primal ring of fire in an alluring sculpture of lighting.

Chicago, Illinois, United States

Lake + Wells and Link Design Solutions resurrect with Vessel Lamp the unique sense of gathering by harnessing the glow of the bonfire for the table in the center of the home or garden for the ritual sharing of wisdom, stories and time.

Vessel Lamp’s ingenious design recently received the 2022 Prize Designs for Modern Furniture and Lighting Award from Global Design News and The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design.

Vessel is part of the new Passages collection – a series of 5 new portable outdoor lamps inspired by movement from one place or time to another – whether between worlds or spaces, in solitary or tribal, dark or light – the Passages lighting collection both explores and breaks down the boundary between the outdoors and the indoors.

Designed for movement and behavior more than for particular places, passages marries the familiar warmth and luxury of the interior with the evocative and ethereal nature of the exterior.

The vessel features an integrated LED and is powered by an internal rechargeable battery for true portability.
