Nude Looker Lamp

Nude Looker Lamp

It’s not naked. It’s stripped. Stripped down to a minimalistic look and feel and working order. Essentials, that’s what is here. But it’s not just a stick and lick of fire, it’s a lamp, The PERCY LAMP; so it’s got some style too. It’s made to have character-like qualities, turning this functional piece of lighting into a product users feel drawn to engage with. To do this, the aesthetic draws heavily on the buttress root system of the Moreton Bay Fig Tree.

Hands of Light and Darkness

Hands of Light and Darkness

It has hands of darkness some times, and hands of light at others. It doesn’t always illuminate the time, but it’ll never leave you in the dark. What is it? Equinox! The clock that’ll illuminate the way you view your hours, minutes, and seconds. Designer Bram Knaapen presents hours as three colored blocks, minutes as a single colored block, and seconds as a fading row of blocks, all of them sliding round and round the Equinox circle.

Lamp and Vase Display

Lamp and Vase Display

Two items, one intent. There’s the “Platevase” combination plate and vase and the “Favourite Things” pendant lamp. With the Platevase you can place not only a lovely flower or flowering treebranch, you can fill it with chocolates and other lovely edibles! What a fantastic combination of smells and tastes made possible by a round porcelain vase! Then there’s the Favourite Things, a pendant lamp with room for all your most awesome little items. Put anything you want in there and bam! Lit well, displayed well, makes the item feel really important. A real esteem booster for trinkets!

Timing Your Lights

Timing Your Lights

The idea is pretty direct and in-your-face….we need to conserve our electricity and can’t have you squandering it away. So how do we implement this? By taking tiny innovative steps, like introducing a timer concept for our lights; especially for the ones on the staircase. A device called the Flat Light does just this, the LED Hourglass interface is quite indicative of its intentions. Once the LED grains reach the bottom, time’s up and lights out! I wonder if you can set the time limits for the whole system, in advance. Question is, are you willing to make the necessary changes to conserve?

Sweet Fragrance Of Lights

Sweet Fragrance Of Lights

Incense sticks play such an important role in our spiritual life; they exude a sense of wellbeing, peace and calmness when we light them. Keeping this in mind and taking inspiration from their soft glowing tips is the Scent – Incense Stick Mood Lights. A bunch of them charge in a base station and can be placed individually or collectively, as you please. The only way I can think of improvising this, will be to add in a aroma dispenser…making it a total replica of the real thing!

Infinite Candle

Infinite Candle

This project goes by the name “One Makes Another” and it takes one candle, a spool of string, and a little bit of metal. Bam! Infinite candle. Right? Sort of. Designer Yuya Kurata describes this project as a candle holder which makes another candle underneath as it melts, but one that isn’t quite complete. The concept is here, the candle isn’t quite ready for it. Because candles do not gutter as much as would be necessary, a slightly distorted candle is made. However! One Make Another does sort of work. It’s nearly there. All they’d need is a different candle consistency and a little bit of the ol’ modification of physics!

Unexpected Light Saber

Unexpected Light Saber

The Scallop Lamp takes obvious inspiration from sea shells and is quite an interesting design. Besides being a floor lamp for ornamental purposes, it doubles up as a flashlight! The top projection detaches to become the handy torch during lights-out. Now that’s what I call really clever designing! It looks chic, has dual purpose and makes total sense!

No More Smokin Globes

No More Smokin Globes

This project is all about quitting smoking. I suppose it doesn’t just have to be tobacco, but that’s the most dangerous LEGAL drug in smoke form out there, so that’s what we’ll focus on. When there is smoke in a room, this Glow Globe lights up. When the smoke is gone, you click the reset button and the light goes dim once again. When there is smoke for an extended period in a room, the light stays on and changes colors. Quite simple.

Lights Above, Lights Below

Lights Above, Lights Below

Where do you have all of your lamps? Above? To the side? All around? How about you get some lamps that sit on the ground and some other lamps that sit above your head? How about a collection of lamps that works in basically any position? Take a look at this “7/7 Lights” lamp collection by Albertine van Iterson. Each lamp is made out of its own materials, has its own identity, and require slightly different treatments. Yet at the same time, they’re all part of the same family.

Dust In Design

Dust In Design

Love this project called Snow Dust. Dust is an inevitable reality, one that we usually sweep away in annoyance but this designer chose to embrace it. A series of everyday household objects like a fan, shutters, and lampshade are constructed to a complex geometric pattern designed to collect dust. Something that is supposed to be gross and dirty is suddenly highlighted and transformed into natural art, unpredictable and possibly beautiful.

Let’s Scale Some Lights

Let’s Scale Some Lights

The Weight of Light is a simple structure lamp featuring a unique way to operate the light. Mimicking the style of an industrial scale, the intensity of the lamp is controlled by shifting the “weight” up and down the “scale”. I adore its refreshing approach, the cute way it tips the scale and minimal look.

What An Adorable Lamp

What An Adorable Lamp

I love Marc Haldermann’s floor lamp called Puu. It’s modern, a little mid-century, yet sophisticated and whimsical. It’s as if he read my mind and made this lamp. It’s all wood using the lampshade’s own weight to create tension on the cord. Looks like a tree, or better yet – chicken feet. I want it. Marc, make me one!

Need A Light To Write At Night?

Need A Light To Write At Night?

As I hit my head to the pillow at night, a thousand things rummage through my head; my next proposal, next-day schedule, unfinished business and most of the times end up getting outta bed to write some notes for the next day. How sweet it would be if I had a notepad and the Write? Light! on my bedside table. It is a lamp that gives off a glow powerful enough to jot down a quick memo. And the way it works is darn cute; kinda like the inkwell and feather effect! Pick up the pencil to light-up; place it back to turn it off. Simple and awesome!
