"Dawn" is a furniture piece created through a change in mechanism design.
 
The simple pulley mechanism was modified to incorporate an electrical dimmer. 
 
"Dawn" compliments the slow rising light from darkness, created through lowering the lampshade. 
 
 
 
 

 
A heavy Concrete lamp shade gives the pulley mechanism a real purpose
As the lampshade is raised or lowered, the pulley rotates, inturn rotating the electrical dimmer through a geared cog system. 
The rough, broken concrete lampshade casts an undulating shadow around the room.

Dawn Lamp

From a brief asking the question "How can a mechanism be modified and used for a different purpose?" the pulley lamp was born.
