Handy Lamp(s)

We’re constantly trying to hide wires, cables and plugs, but this modular system of lighting by zwei21 really owns its construction. It features attractive, colorful, textile cables, plugs, lampshades and joints that can be combined and placed in a variety of combinations to suit the user’s taste and need. Up to 3 cables can be connected to each joint for additional light. It’s a great solution for reading, working or subtle accent lighting.

Illuminating Memory Pins

Illuminating Memory Pins

Love the ambient effect these ‘Light Up Your Memories’ drawing pin conjure. I can imagine them being handed out as party favors, or being conversation starters. Moreover they do the job of highlighting a particular picture or note quite effectively!

Parisian Perfection

Parisian Perfection

The latest collection of lighting by Ozone has all the refinement you’d expect from the Parisian design team. The designs vary greatly from one piece to the next but they all exhibit a reduced yet sophisticated aesthetic that fits perfectly in minimal environments and classic settings alike. Each is sure to be a focal point of any room it’s in.

Reduced to Beautiful

Reduced to Beautiful

Ask any designer and they’ll tell you the same thing- a winning balance of functional and aesthetic simplicity is harder to achieve than you might think. Take a few notes from the team at Bureau Puree because they’ve hit the nail on the head with this design: the Cone Lamp. It’s a gleaming example of simplicity and reduced design with a characteristic form.

Shadow Dancing with Lights!

Shadow Dancing with Lights!

I love the concept of this lamp called Catch Memory Light! Until now we needed a dim-lit room, a light source and a creative imagination to make shadow-shapes on the wall. With this quirky lamp you can make illuminated shapes thanks to its sensor plate. The lamp mimics your ‘dog’ and ‘peacock eyes’ not as a dark shadow, but as an illuminant figure. Complex yet simple, it’s going on my wishlist for now.

Garcon, one Cup of Light please

Garcon, one Cup of Light please

There’s a little light in every wonderful project, and here on Yanko Design we’ve got to appreciate the tools just as much as the ideas we produce – for example here a tiny light producer called “T Light”. What this little lamp is essentially a lightbulb in a coffee cup covered by a bit of cloth which enhances the overall quality of your experience. Look like your cuteness to go?

Model-Skinny Lighting

Model-Skinny Lighting

Composed of 3mm thick aluminum sheets and a super slim OLED light, the highlight of the Lanx lamp is its extreme thinness. Its bare, minimal aesthetic is contrasted with a warm wood veneer, making it a perfect desktop lamp for modern and traditional spaces alike.

A Holy Lamp for Lovers of Illusion

A Holy Lamp for Lovers of Illusion

Created with just an LED strip, a ring diffuser, a power source and a mirror on a bit of back support, this is Aureole, a unique lighting solution. You’ll find that what you’ve got here is a halo of light, made whole by the mirror that sits behind a crescent of LEDs. Hang a series of these on your wall and have a lineup of holy rollers in the making.

Sticks of light save your snowbound night

Sticks of light save your snowbound night

For those about to camp in dangerous or otherwise unsettling environments, remember that you’ve always got LED lamps on your side. In this case is via Kairi Eguchi’s design LET Touch Stick, a device which breaks up into parts for easy carrying and otherwise provides solar-charged sticks of light for safety. These lights are able to stay on all night or blink off and on throughout the night so you can safely be rescued by the forces that be from your long-lost place of snow-bound camp.

Upcycled Vintage Automotive turned Furniture

Upcycled Vintage Automotive turned Furniture

There’s nothing quite like a good Steampunk project to get your engine revving – unless of course you’ve got a bunch of car and motorcycle parts lying around and can go the extra mile. Upcycling is one of the most awesome ways to express your love for using things twice, and with fantastically lovely looking vehicle parts like this, furniture pieces never looked so hardcore! Classified Moto brings you their own unique take on the current state of industrial auto furniture and accessories here.

Redesigned Nomad Lamp

Redesigned Nomad Lamp

Designed to meet the needs of families without access to electricity in developing countries, the Nomad is an all-around great multi-use lamp that is both durable and super-efficient. Simply leav it in the sun and go on about your day… by nighttime you’ll have light at the brightest setting for up to 6 hours!

Dang The Radiated Illumination

Dang The Radiated Illumination

I have seen radiators repurposed as towel dryers and mimicked as mugs, but this is my first lamp! Radiant Floor Lamp features an array of lamp elements, modeled after standard-sized fluorescent U-bulbs. As Steve explains, “The path from electricity to light is controlled by a standard water spigot valve handle.” Love it!
