Lamptron!

Lamptron!

Does anyone remember Armatron?! Designer Otto Polefko’s COG lamp instantly reminded me of one of my favorite childhood toys. The quirky design has a similar robotic aesthetic that was inspired by the designer’s hometown of Miskolc, Hungary, which used to be an industrial center in the 80s. The lamp is a blend of former and modern style trends, and is as functional as it is fun!

Lighting Naturally

Lighting Naturally

When you live in the city, it’s easy to lose touch of some of mother nature’s simple offerings like a breeze or wild plant life. Keeping in mind how these things can inspire appreciation of nature, the designers at Pensa created this unique lighting solution that mimics the shape and sway of water reeds. Powered by the water’s current, the Light Reeds provide a subtle, romantic glow to public areas while offering a deeper connection to the waterfront.

Literal Gas Lamp

Literal Gas Lamp

The Gas Lamp (which isn’t a gas lamp at all!) is a straightforward approach to the pendant that uses the iconic design of the propane gas tank as a shade. It’s a vivid reminder of the evolution of lighting that will compliment industrial and outdoor spaces alike.

The Story of Lampus

The Story of Lampus

When you are at the helm of an innovative organization such as the Art Lebedev Studio, one can only expect only the best in design to be dished out. Once again your concept is spectacular, so take a bow Art!

The Lumpus is an adjustable modular table lamp with three LED modules located on the same axis. Crafted from anodized aluminum, each lamp rotates independently and switches-on, individually. Simple and minimal, the lamp is as elegant as a swan!

Urban Campfire

Urban Campfire

We’re all familiar with campfires, but here’s a clever twist on everyone’s favorite camping pastime. Introducing the LampFire! Composed of 3 independent “torches,” it was designed as a way for urban dwellers or beach lovers to enjoy a campfire-like glow from the comfort of the city. Separated, they can be used as flashlights until you reach your destination and combine them to create your LampFire! Now, if only it could roast marshmallows…

Loopy Lighting

Loopy Lighting

Free of excess, the stripped-down LOOP lamp offers a simple and unique way of directing light where you want it to go. LOOP’s electrical cables have additional functionality as they both suspend the lamp and allow the user to adjust the angle of the light. A clever, contemporary design that looks good both off and on!

Bright Slide

Bright Slide

The super modern-looking Slide Lamp is constructed from a single piece of machine-hallowed hardwood mounted on a cast aluminum base. The unorthodox construction also makes for very unique functionality- simply raise or lower the intuitive side lever to turn it on or off, or adjust the brightness!

Urban Camping

Urban Camping

I love a design that takes inspiration from a familiar fragment to stimulate the viewer’s memory and imagination. Lamp Fire is one of these creative concepts and is reminiscent of the campfires that many of us experienced as children. It’s a clever way of enjoying campfire conversations from the comfort of home!

Untamed Lighting

Untamed Lighting

The unique Hed Lyte (love the name!) concept by Creative Session will bring soft light and a touch of wildness to any space! The design puts a modern, geometric, sculptural twist on the popular taxidermy animal head, utilizing the elephant model’s tusks and the deer model’s antlers as lighting accents. Sure to be a conversation starter!

Primping Up the Lamps

Primping Up the Lamps

Unless you live in a vibrant city like Kula Lumpur, where you have such ornate streetlamps, chances are that you are stuck with drab energy draining streetlamps. Parasite is a Photovoltaic Lamp that parasitically hooks onto existing lamps and scaffoldings, primping the old. The PV cell system is modeled on the system designed by Spectrolab.

Adorably Wild Lighting

Adorably Wild Lighting

Inspired by the wildlife of the African savannah, the GIFU lamp series is as lovable as it is super-functional as a space saving design. Each lamp arrives flat-packed, but unfold it to reveal an adorable animalian form. The clever design makes the most of each component with the wiring resembling a tail and the bulb resembling a trunk!

Illuminated Wired Mess

Illuminated Wired Mess

Chaos theory rules as I try and come to grips with the traditional connotations of the After Image Floor Lamp. Modelled on the mesmerizing ember effects of a fire going out in the dead of the night, red wires in an organized chaotic fashion, wrap around the modular frame of this lamp. To quote Monocomplex, the design was inspired from the scene of mouse fire play; ‘Jui-bool-no-ri , which is one of Korea’s traditional customs. If you ask me, it’s a whole lot of wires and bulbs in a symbiotic relationship!
