Ambient Rock Lights: What Happens When Lava Lamps Cool Off
December 23rd, 2011
Designed by Andre Cazenave, these rock sculptures do double duty as ambient lighting. They’re smooth and cool stones by day and sexy and toasty lamps by night.
Are they actually made of rocks? I’m not sure, but the description sure implies that that is the case: “Each luminous stone is crafted and finished by hand to make it appear like a real stone as found in nature! The only difference is that this stone emits a wonderful soft ambient light.” And it looks like a radioactive sperm cell with its cable exposed.
Their prices are rock sculpture-ish as well – Nova68 is selling the ambient rock lights for $295 (USD) to $635 depending on the size of the rock; light bulb not included. I really am intrigued by these lamps; it’s a shame we don’t have more images or videos of them. I mean, at those prices these can’t be just papier-mache or plastic cases can they?
