Yoyo Lamp: Try to Shoot the Moon With One of These

Some of my fondest childhood memories involve doing (or more accurately, attempting to do) tricks with an old Duncan Butterfly YoYo. So when I saw these whimsical YoYo lighting fixtures, I said to myself – hey, I need one of those!

YoYo Lamp

German Designers Catarina von Matérn + Lisa Lindström created theses clever floor lamps for Elmar Flötotto which store their power cord around a central axle when not in use. A 16-meter (52-foot) long red cable rolls around the middle of the lamp, letting you move it far, far away from the wall if need be.

The lamps are made of durable white transluscent Polyethylene, and measure about 18-inches in diameter. And thanks to plenty of flat surface area, I don’t see any reason you couldn’t lay the lamp on its side to serve as an illuminated side table.

You can get your fingers wrapped around on the YoYo lamp over at Questo Design for €232.80 (appx. $367 USD). If that’s too much money for you, maybe you should just stick with one of these.
