Pampshades, Lamps Made From Real Bread Loaves

Now I know what you’re thinking, and I couldn’t agree more: the wait is finally over. Pampshades (“P” from pan, bread in Japanese, and “ampshade” from lampshade) are lamps made from actual bread loaves. Did anybody else just lick make-believe crumbs from their fingers?

Get ’em while they’re hot! The ingredient list for Pampshades includes strong flour (high gluten content), weak flour (low gluten content), salt, yeast, an LED light, and either a battery pack or an electric adapter. They range in price from around $52 for a petite loaf up to $150 for a full French baguette. But can you really put a price on an emergency bedside snack?

Pampshades are the brainchild of Yukiko Morita, who believes the very sight of bread can make people feel warm, and set out to create a lamp from which “the delicious light of bread gently illuminates you.” I need that. I need the delicious light of bread illuminating me. Unfortunately, if I had a rodent problem before (which I did), I’m really going to have one now.
