Time Your Light

Time Your Light

Timer To Light is this really cute LED light concept that is based on mechanical energy. Rotate the timer base to crank up the mechanism inside, and as it slowly unwinds, the stored energy powers the lamp. I can foresee it becoming a hit with people who adore lighting candles, coz this seems to have a similar ambient effect. It would be safer and economical too. Awesome colors too!

Ancient Mayan Suspended Lighting Fixture

Ancient Mayan Suspended Lighting Fixture

That’s no artifact you’ve got your eyes fixed on there, that’s a genuine Studio Italia Design lighting fixture! Channeling the fantastic design sense of these elder-peoples Southern-Americans, Studio Italia takes this suspended light fixture and creates a geometric honeycomb shape made with a lacquered metal frame. I wonder what you think of such channelling : are you foe or are you against?

Magneto Need Not Apply

Magneto Need Not Apply

Who here loves magnets? Raise your hand. Oh that was pretty rough. Too bad you don’t have magnets on your arms and sides to make that hand raising a little easier. Here you are using muscles and such like a sucker! Designer Denis Santachiara at Studio Italia has a desk lamp that’s held up with magnetic forces. Magnetic forces are nothing less than pure black magic!

White Shining Light Goes DISCO

White Shining Light Goes DISCO

How about a light that’s all white and prim when you want it as a spot, but goes psychedelic on a whim? The ELS-magnetic is an acrylic smart LED lamp that conforms to this. Now I did say it was smart; it’s got no visible switches to work it, but instead relies on two special zones on the surface where you can touch it to make the changes.Smartness personified; you can create your own modes with the software that comes along and transfer the new settings to the lamp without hooking it to a PC.

Recycled Lights

Recycled Lights

Here are two creative individuals who have decided to DO something instead of offering lip-service to the term RECYCLE. They use their imagination to craft out the most amazing Recycled Plastic PET Bottle Lights. In case you picture sea-creatures in some of their art, then that’s coz Lisa, an architect, fancies them. Landscape designer, Su Sim takes inspiration from natural landforms instead. Hop around Malaysia to catch the duo showcase their eco-artworks. Take a bow designers!

LED Bud Lighting Up

LED Bud Lighting Up

Just twist on up! The cap above the pedal, that is. It’s like a volume knob, opening the flower or closing it, bringing the light to a broader world or directing it to a sharper area. 32 warm and cold LEDs spread across four adjustable pedals on a pivot and twist head joint.

Demolition Robot

Demolition Robot

Did you watch the Seattle Kingdome demolition in 2000? That stadium was brought down by implosion techniques; however it’s not necessary to resort to kabooms every time you want to bring down walls or buildings. To knock them off safely something like the Kaputt.R Demolition Robot should suffice.

UPDATE: Check out the video of the robot in action

Erasing Darkness

Erasing Darkness

The big push takes the place of the little switch with this new light device by Steffen Kehrle and Julia Landsiedl for Moree. Apparently it’s difficult to dim these new energy-saving lightbulbs. They be bright. Ths solution these two designers have here is to literally block the light, the object replicating the look of a push-out eraser with a paper cover. Don’t worry though, this is made of aluminum.

Darth Vader of The Night Lights

Darth Vader of The Night Lights

While his Zweistil Bike project brought him many accolades, the Night Ease project may dub Stefan Wallmann as the creator of the “Darth Vader of the night lights…” This one’s a simple solar solution that has its bottom covered with solar cells for juicing up. During the day just invert it with the bottom up, on its ring-stand and let it soak in the rays. At night, place it peak-side up and turn it the right way around (it has a tilt switch inside) to activate the light. For the Jedi, may this force be with you!

Hi-Res LED Pendant Lamp

Hi-Res LED Pendant Lamp

Light 4 is an exploratory exercise in trying to understand the iconic nature of objects through their form. Christian Harrup wanted the design to be unique, functional, and memorable. The main structure of this pendant lamp is made of injection moulded polycarbonate and uses high resolution LED’s or linear fluorescents concealed behind a polycarbonate lens. Simple and totally feasible. The shape lends well to a fashion studio thanks to the inherent “hanger” form.

Intelligent Wristwatch Gaming

Intelligent Wristwatch Gaming

It is only every few years that a new hand-held video game system gets invented. They keep getting smaller, having better graphics, and being basically the same amount of weird and bulky to carry with. What Wilson Song was tasked with doing was making a gamer that not only utilized the best in chips for graphics, but also stored a pen, earbuds, and had the ability to become smaller for easy carrying. Peel and see!

An Empty Bottle Gets A New Purpose In Life

An Empty Bottle Gets A New Purpose In Life

What good is an empty discarded glass bottle? It only deserves to go back to the recycle bin! NOOO! Wait, don’t give up as yet, invert it over the “Re:fill Chime Bell And Lights” and see it dazzle on your restaurant table! The concept is this: you’re in the restaurant waiting for the waiter to show up to take your order, frantic waving and subtle gestures aren’t working. Use this ingenious gadget to attract the guy’s attention: order = pink light; water = blue light and bill = green light. Sneaky me is never gonna hit the bill button!

Lighted Artwork On My Walls

Lighted Artwork On My Walls

The closest I ever got to needlepoint or patchwork was way back in school when I was forced to do it (for grades!). Looking at the Breathing Patchwork has stirred the artist in me to try out some artsy work in the name of innovation. Basically these modular light tiles are marriage between doing “family patchwork quilt and home-made stained glass windows.” Using your creativity, paint out images on the tiles (which look translucent during the day) and watch them to come to life in the evening thanks to the OLED emitter. Create the ultimate “stained glass” mosaic!
