As we look for more ways to generate energy-efficient light, we’ve seen a gradual move away from the warm glow of incandescent light, to the ugly pinkish hues of CFL, to the strange blueish-white point-source light produced by LEDs.
Ladies and gentlemen: World Peace is within our reach, thanks to d*light. Designed by Diana Lin, d*light is a “combination of ambient lighting and cushion”, a benevolent matrimony of woven polyester and SMD LEDs. It provides a soft light and just the right amount of warmth, such that even the Devil himself will repent and come back to the arms of the Maker after hugging d*light.
After what seems like an eternity to me, the wonderful, whimsical Alien Abduction Lamp has finally landed here on planet Earth!
Lasse Klein’s whimsical lamp design first showed its face on Technabob all the way back in June 2007, and it’s taken over 2 years for a final production version of the lamp to find its way to our humble M-Class planet.
It’s extremely rare – if not unheard of – for me to write two posts about the same person in a row. However, while I was researching designer Craigton Berman‘s totally awesome LEGO remote control concept, I came across this lamp over on his website and just had to mention it.
With a height of 35.43 inches – almost 3 feet – the Edison the Grand lamp is 5 inches taller than Danny DeVito. Okay it’s not really taller than ol’ Penguin, but compared to other lamps, it’s practically a lighthouse.
Well it’s been a while since I’ve come across any modern lighting that I would actually call “super cool”, but these unique adjustable fixtures definitely deserve their name. So I guess it’s a good thing that they’re named these lamps Supercool.
Or maybe the designer just skipped Biology classes. The Alien Lamp by Buro Fur Form is supposedly “reminiscent of a strange, otherworldly creature sliding down a rope, gently and almost weightlessly radiating a warm and graceful light”, but it looks pretty familiar to me.
While I’ve been waiting a really long time for the Alien Abduction Lamp to finally get mass-produced, I guess I’ll have to settle for this glowing green orb lamp from Japan for now.
These little spherical lamps sure look like some sort of retro spacecraft to me, especially the glowing green part, and the tripod legs.
Antrepo Design Industry, the smart people behind some really cool concepts and art, are at it again with their latest design for a lamp: the Spoticam. It’s a lamp that looks like a security camera, perfect for mothers who want to rub it in their kid’s face that they’re grounded.
Few things scream class like attractive handmade decor. These steampunk-inspired lights would class up any room.
These all look so good that I can’t even decide which one I like best–and if these aren’t enough, there are more at designer Frank Buchwald’s site.
There’s nothing quite so yummy as a bag of chewy gummy bears – especially the red ones. While these gummy bear lighting fixtures aren’t edible, they still look like fun.
These GummiLights are made of a translucent rubber and measure in at 7-inches tall.
Perfect for closet crime-fighters, this replica Bat Signal will definitely give you extra geek cred the next time your friends come over.
The miniature replica Bat-Signal features a sturdy metal construction and stands about 12-inches tall.
This lamp makes me want to do another edition of “Why? Why not?”, but I’m too tired to be bewildered today so I’ll let you guys be the judge.
The yolk-light is also the switch; press it to turn the light on/off.
If this lamp concept from designer John Nouanesing is ever turned into a real product, it’ll be one of those things that’ll amuse you for a day or two. Afterwards it’ll just be a conversational piece, something to show your date while you figure out what to say – or do – next.
While the people behind Design2009 could not have possibly chosen a more generic Etsy name, their products are bursting with creativity. Their KOZO line of handmade lamps make use of pipes and faucets to come up with a raw and tough take on the good old lamp.
Wokka, wokka, wokka. Check out these bright Pac-Man neon lights.
Sure, they don’t look exactly the same as the original Inky, Blinky, Pinky, Clyde and Pac-Man, but they’re close enough to pass for their video game doppelgangers from a distance.
