The Inspiration:

Dr Elizabeth Blackwell was the first woman to earn a medical degree in the United States when, in 1849, she graduated first in her class from the Geneva Medical School in New York. She was a trailblazer who helped open the medical profession to women.

Born in England but moving to the United States at an early age, Blackwell confronted discrimination throughout her life and helped train subsequent generations of women in the practice of medicine at the New York Infirmary for Women and Children.

When we designed this lamp, we wanted to be able to create something that shows the state of balancing between one’s aspiration to achieve and external forces working against you. This is why it seemingly hangs in the air, unaffected by the force of gravity and glowing almost magically from its hidden light sources. It manages to create a modern yet classical feel; whether off or on, thereby achieving its aims, while still anchored firmly to its roots.
