Lamps Made Out of Light Bulbs

by Paul Strauss

These unique lighting fixtures out of Germany reuse old dead light bulbs to create dramatic sculptural lamps.

Bulb Lamp by Bulbs Unlimited

Bulbs Unlimited sells kits that let you create fixtures like the ones pictured here from your own recycled bulbs. The kits include everything you need to make these cool designer fixtures except for the bulbs themselves. A special bulb marking template, adhesive and “snaps” let you arrange your bulbs into a variety of cool shapes and sizes, including desk lamps and hanging fixtures.

They also offer pre-built “Light Objects” which have already been made into a lamp that you just snap together when it arrives.

Kits range in price from about 12,95€ (appx. $18 USD) all the way up to 89,95€ (appx. $122 USD), depending on the complexity of the design.

    Wow,that intresting,this is worthy to digg.

  2. the scholar says:

    this is intriguing. i like the idea, but how do you change the light bulb if it’s in the middle of the “lamp?” do you have to disassemble the whole thing?

  3. Watch TV says:

    Now that’s illuminating! (sorry I couldn’t resist)

  4. dkn says:

    Now that is interesting!!! How do you change the lightbulb?

  5. dudder says:

    Nice stuff! I want one of those.

  6. naser says:

    Wicked cool…

    But I’d never have one in my possession though. Its like one of those crazy things you’d rather sell to get some money for the new 3:10 to Yuma DVD, but would never think of buying one for yourself.

    + I’m from the 3-rd is dead to us unless it edible.

  7. Kal says:

    Nice waste of energy. That’s right, let’s give the light surfaces to bounce off and more chances to get absorbed and turned into heat before actually illuminating the place.

  8. Fudgy says:


    You have a chance to impress us with your insight, and you choose to take a stand against lampshades?

    What a bright idea :-)

    We’ve had one of these for some time now and its pretty cool, we’ve got a square one and when the bulb’s dead you just hang it from another one.

  11. chris says:

    kinda hurting. It’s hard enough for me to not break a lightbulb by itself I can’t imagine 10-30 at once..

  12. Mark says:

    Check out the recycled tube light here.:

  13. Ta4ka says:

    That’s very cool

  14. Mark says:

    Cool! I have a whole shitload of dead bulbs.. Now I know what to do with them :)

  15. Why stop with dead light bulbs. Use old dead appliances like I do. Visit and see what I mean.

  16. Rita says:

    I am looking for some of those LED light bulbs so I can save some money. They are so cool, and they are good for the environment as well. I’m going to have to do some price comparisons online for them.

  17. Sakariasen says:

    That looks awesome but I’d be worried about knocking it over and breaking it rather easily.

  18. energy-savinglightbulbs says:

    Amazing lamps, I especially like the use of the not so energy saving incandescent light bulb
