The original, designed in 1950 by Jean Prouvé and Charlotte Perriand, goes for a cool $1720.  But, like any true DIYer, Logan from the blog OneFortyThree heeded the call and took the challenge to make his own.  And with an eye toward design and some sweet skills, he did just that - for a fraction of the cost, of course!

For this project, you're going to need some welding skills* or a friend who knows how.  Then it's simply a matter of gathering your materials...

  • 1/2" steel tubing
  • steel flat bar
  • scrap wood for the handle
  • cloth covered wire
  • electrical plug and fittings

...and following Logan's instructions!

*If you find yourself without welding abilities, Logan is selling a few of these DIY Potence lamps in his Etsy shop for $375 a pop.
