Sweet Icicle Lamp Keeps Its Cool

by Paul Strauss

Designed by Japan’s M+K Design, these slick lamps use modern lighting technology to offer a cool, otherworldly glow. To me, they look like something taken right off the set of Blade Runner or Minority Report.

Designers Maiko Watanabe and Koichi Tanaka’s Sweet Icicle Lamps encase a bright cold cathode tube in a block of crystal clear acrylic to add drama to any room. Cold cathode fluorescents are the same type of lamps used to illuminate modern LCD screens and many desktop scanners.

The fixtures come in two sizes and are available in both blue and white tube colors. I haven’t been able to find a North American outlet for these yet, but if you’re willing to do a little Japanese translation, you can find them on Rakuten ranging from ¥12,600 (appx. $112 USD) to ¥15,750 (appx. $141 USD).
