Built this and the table below the lamp 2011. Thought I might as well upload it and see what others think of it.
Those gears aren't just for show but do serve a useful purpose.
There is a crank on the side which makes the gears move (obviously) causing the arm to lift and the body to tilt.
As i mentioned in the title, this is only a prototype so it is pretty rough. I didn't make any drawings or plans, i just went with the flow... The mechanism is not my design but the overall lamp is.
I only saw how the mechanism moved on a video but had to remake it without any plans... I nailed it on my first try
The table is just a nice table :/
