David Weeks for Tala
The Reflection Oblo Table Lamp combines premium porcelain with high-quality LED technology, bringing together Tala and David Weeks for the first in a trilogy of design collaborations.
Exclusive for Tala, acclaimed New York designer, David Weeks, has conjured four table lamps based on Tala’s porcelain bulbs: Enno, Noma, Oblo and Oval.
The strong, square shape of the Oblo bulb is reflected in the robust form of the premium porcelain lamp, while the beautiful reflective glaze in the top third of the base accentuates the bulb’s glow to give the series its name.

More about the premium lighting collection: Reflection
Marrying New York modernism with British ingenuity, award-winning designer David Weeks has conjured a series of products exclusively for Tala.
Winner of the Dwell design awards 2021, the Reflection series of table lamps features semi-translucent premium porcelain, hand-thrown and twice-fired to facilitate the reflective glaze that adorns the top third of the lamp and defines the piece.
Each lamp is hand adjusted and measured to ensure a perfect fit with the bulb, achieving a beautiful symmetry between the lamp and the bulb.
Truth to Materials
Sourced from Jingdezhen, the 'Porcelain Capital' of China, and individually crafted by hand, the Reflection lamps portray time-honoured skills and natural materials.
The lower section of the lamp base is intentionally unglazed to celebrate the raw bisque finish, while the artisanal nature of the products means each piece is unique in texture, colour and shape, with no two pieces alike. Any variations or differences in their final form owes to these processes and should not be considered a defect.
