If you’re into the steampunk aesthetic, you know that it’s loaded with gears – lots and lots of gears. And if you like gears, you’ll love this wall lamp. The lamp uses a reflector light bulb and a precision-cut sheet of gloss black plexiglas to cast shadows onto the wall.
The gigantic gear shadows will make it seem like you’re standing inside of a factory from Modern Times or Metropolis, as your oppressive overlords make you slave away to build their widgets. The only thing better would be if the gears actually moved.
The shadow gear lamp is made by ZK Home Design, who creates all kinds of sweet shadowcaster lamps. They come in a 30cm x 20 cm (~11.8″ x 7.9″) and 78cm (30.7″ x 18.9″) x 48cm sizes, priced roughly about $85 or $150 respectively.
