A complete 100-lb bomb from the Korean War is suspended above the floor by an elegant, minimalist stand.
The original paint is stripped away, and the underlying steel hand-polished until it gleams. Special hardware keeps the bomb safely in place, while allowing for easy disassembly.
An optional linen shade (pictured) shields the dual sockets.
Approximately 70" from floor to harp (where the shade attaches). Bomb is 9" diameter, 42" tall; stand is 18" diameter, 42" tall. Shade is 17" high, 18" base diameter. Finished with 6' cloth-wrapped cord and vintage-style plug.
Stockpile Designs is the brainchild of Brooklyn-based furniture designer Jake Wright. Raised by a USAF pilot and a defense contractor, his childhood home was cluttered with ephemera from his parent's careers: model airplanes, brass lanterns and Berber rugs from duty in North Africa, samples of radiation shielding from missile defense systems. These unconventional surroundings are the inspiration for his work, which uses obsolete equipment and military-derived construction to create sleek and efficient designs that retain the power of their antecedents.
