Squeezable and Rechargeable Lantern

Squeezable and Rechargeable Lantern

The Küch Lantern is very similar to some other lanterns already in the market but one thing is does differently is you can squeeze its squeezable body to activate it. Otherwise you turn it on by spinning a rotary dial at the base. Speaking of which it charges with a dock. No details on how long the charge will hold or how long the light will last but isn’t this just perfect for those moonlit strolls?

Twinky Lights, Oh So Cute And Moody!

Twinky Lights, Oh So Cute And Moody!

I don’t know why they are called the Light Recycler, but the job of this cute little stub is to enhance the small dots of power indicators that surround us. Tiny dots of lights are all around us…the power on our CPU, gadgets charger, cordless phone hub, etc. So you stick on the Light Recycler, which sorta enhances the mild dim to a catchy glow. Why? Just for the fun of it, Mood Lights, no apparent reason and please don’t look for one either!

A Shape in the Broken Mirror

A Shape in the Broken Mirror

A Shape in the Broken Mirror of our lives! Or not quite that dramatic. Lovely, though! The lights you’re about to experience are inspired by broken glass mirrors and windows. But while a broken mirror breaks, it basically looses its function, these “Broken Mirror” lights rely on those cracks for shedding!

Angular Stiffness

Angular Stiffness

Due to the stiffening angles in this fabulous object, there is nothing included but the single flexible material. It is called TAKOOI, in all caps like that, TAKOOI, and it’s made of plastic/paper. The designer has been vague enough as to not reveal the SECRET behind the design, but perhaps you’re stealthy enough to figure that out.

Such Pretty Moonstones

Such Pretty Moonstones

I’m in love with the Seoul Green Project called Luna Piedra which means moonstone in Spanish. These beautiful pebbles illuminate with embedded OLEDs. They replace traditional lighting setups which aren’t portable and waste a lot of energy. The Luna Piedra generates enough power by water currents using a very tiny nano generator. It doesn’t heat up and leaves no polluting effluents. I want one, NOW.

Elegance in a Lego Light Fixture

Elegance in a Lego Light Fixture

One of the most popular build-your-own toys on earth is, and has been for years and years, Lego. Here at Yanko Design we’ve mentioned Lego a few times, but not any time recently have we had a post about something made almost exclusively OUT OF legos. Astounding! This lovely chandelier breaks that trend with incredible classiness for a kids toy made of plastic.

A Hundred and Fifty Glasses

A Hundred and Fifty Glasses

How much wine and water can one fellow drink? 150+1 to be exact. This chandelier’s name is “Cut Glasses” and was designed and constructed by one John Harrington. I think you’ll find this to be quite the lovely headpiece for any fabulous room, and no less breakable than any other mass of glass you’re bound to have up there. These glasses aren’t made for drinking liquids out of though, only to drink in the light and turn the light on it’s top, bottom, and side.

Make Art With Electrical Wire

Make Art With Electrical Wire

Instead of hiding messy wires, the Drawing Line concept encourages art with them. A mounted peg board (pegs included) over a wall socket provides a blank canvas to string and weave your own art. This could end up one of two ways. Some people may do some amazing things with it. They’re just better at pulling form and space out of unusual mediums. Other people will just end up mounting messy wires. Regardless, I think it’s an interesting idea taking what’s normally a hidden afterthought into a functional art piece.

Light In A Pinch

Light In A Pinch

Hang up lights to suit your mood simply by clipping on electro-luminescent sheets of paper to a hard-wire clip called the Pinch. Simple idea that leaves the door wide open for all kinds of interchangeable lighting options. I can envisage guest designers and artists contributing to the system to build one-of-a-kind lighting kits. I wish this weren’t just a concept.

Micro Perforated Perfection

Micro Perforated Perfection

How would you like to know that when it’s not the light of your life, your bulb is busy resting in it’s own lovely nest? That kind of peace of mind can be yours, now! With only a single steel sheet to cover it, this bulb’s next to a mother, but its only child is light. Each sheet of steel is made to be penetrated by light with micro-perforations. Open and closed at the same time.

Three Lamp Lights and a Top to Hold

Three Lamp Lights and a Top to Hold

It’s not just one lightbulb, it’s three. It’s not just made out of metal, it’s got chords, too. This is a ceiling fixture if ever have I seen one. It’s made for functionality, but often with stripped-down efficiency comes aesthetically pleasing beauty. That’s how it is these days. And I love it.

Beautifying The Han

Beautifying The Han

River Han winds its way through Seoul and poses a pretty picture. I’m sure a stroll along its banks will be pleasant and refreshing, but designer Kyung Kuk Kim (he’s a resident of Seoul) feels, Han can be beautified in a very inviting and eco-friendly way. He proposes the installation of Wind Lamps on the underbelly of the bridge, across the river. These vertical lamps are fitted with a specialized wind-harnessing generator that powers the LEDs within.

Crank Up Some Lights This Time

Crank Up Some Lights This Time

You do recollect the Crank Up Battery, right? Close on heels to that concept is this Eco – Twinkle Light. Just like how you would crank up the battery or simply sharpen a pencil, you rotate Twinkle’s handle to charge it up. Twinkling fairy lights with loads of imaginary fairy dust, sparkle up this gem of an idea!
