About Empty

Empty Lamps started with the intrigue of the carbon filament bulbs. This idea grew into needing a base to hold the bulb, and then further into a whole selection of timber bases to support the idea and let the full package glow. 

I love working in with people to create a perfect piece for your home or office. Custom pieces are a very rewarding adventure. If you have an idea or a design in mind, feel free to send me a message and we can try and create something special for you.

Murray Thorpe is the designer and manufacturer behind Empty Lamps. A licenced electrician with a love for timber and creating. Taking inspiration from architecture, shadows and various forms of woodwork, Thorpe works to create his own style. Bespoke pieces fit for purpose and good vibes.

All lights are in accordance with Australian & New Zealand Standards and use quality certified products. 


PLEASE NOTE: Timber is a natural living product. This means no two pieces are the same and colours can vary.
