A couple of the younger staff members who work at Lamps Plus thought it would be fun to start a project called "Lamps Plus Labs".

The idea is to make little grassroots video clips related to what we do here.

Our first one is called "The Closer" and features a designer who is struggling with his next LED desk lamp design. 

Drawing a blank, he goes out into the world for a stroll, and we see that he's become obsessed with closing objects.

After his outing, he comes back to the drawing board and has an "ah-ha" moment of insight with closing that leads to a neat design, the Z Folding LED Lamp.

Check it out for yourself and let us know what you think!
