Modo Desk Lamp by Roll & Hill
Design Jason Miller
Like other fixtures in the series, the Modo desk lamp was inspired by the kinds of ready-made, off-the-shelf parts that can be found at inexpensive lighting stores. Unlike those, however, Modo is painstakingly engineered and custom CNC-milled from solid metal.
Jason Miller is a Brooklyn-based designer and the founder of Roll & Hill. Born in New York and raised in Darien, Connecticut, Jason’s suburban upbringing heavily influenced his early, more conceptual pieces — duct-taped chairs and racked vases, among them — and continues to inform the elegant, historically rich work that has become his signature. Jason received an MFA in painting and spent time in both the art and advertising worlds, but soon realized he preferred making things to documenting them. His designs — like a mirror whose photographic surface recalls a painted landscape — still often reflect those early preoccupations, but each is a functional object, with a kind of beauty and wit. Today, Jason runs both Jason Miller Studio and Roll & Hill from his headquarters in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. He lives nearby with his daughter, Tuesday.
