The 'Ambassador' was the first car to be manufactured in India, and through fifty years of production has become an everlasting icon for the country. For me the car represents a sense of authority, elegance, and industrial simplicity. Hence the idea of making a series of lamps as a tribute to the ambassador emerged.


Ambassador car parts in usable condition were difficult to source as the vehicle is almost out of production. After several trips to scrap markets in Kurla and Bharat Bazaar, Mumbai, i was able to source the body parts of an ambassador car needed for my lamps.


The lamp frame was designed to take the weight and form of the ambassador headlight. The details were resolved and fabricated at the workshop itself through a series of mock setups. The base is made of a thick metal plate to counterbalence the weight of the heavy glass cover. The lamp is flexible at all three joints with a rotating base, allowing complete mobility and flexibility in usage.


The lamp is available on a made to order basis and can be customised to size and colour as per the requirement.
