Lamps Made Out of Light Bulbs
September 8th, 2007
These unique lighting fixtures out of Germany reuse old dead light bulbs to create dramatic sculptural lamps.
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.
