The American Standards Lamp by Peter Bristol is a bit of a commentary on some of our current American building techniques.

The standard construction materials and methods used in the US are realized in this lamp. “From the 2×4 wall studs to the cheap light switches, it seems that when building a wall, location is really the only decision left to make. The utilitarian relationship between these standard materials, dimensions, and parts comes together to create a modern icon that is hidden in plain sight… Flipping on the American Standards Lamp is as routine as unlocking the door. The lamp creates diffused light and provides an accessible extra power outlet.”
