Sands Of Light

Sands Of Light

The notion of time slipping through our fingers is well represented by the sand timer, but how about light slipping through? This effect is captured by the Lime Light – Solar Fled Lamp and is well depicted by the tiny glass bulbs that refract light as they cascade down the hourglass and illuminate the room. The clock is ticking….glass balls fall through to the bottom half, and when they run out…the lamp switches off. Elegant and with a strong message to conserve. Time (light) is running out….

Get Hexy

Get Hexy

Welcome to the nest. It’s not a bird’s nest. It’s a nest for hexes. And when I say hexes I mean lights. Made in order to remind the user of home, where the heart is, where one can truly relax. Like a home whose components are all plug-and-play, the frame acts as the gopher holes, and the hexagon-shaped lights like the gophers. But hanging from the ceiling. And each hole makes the bulb burn brighter.

Get a Bit Nesty

Get a Bit Nesty

Welcome to the “Nest Light.” That’s nest, like the one the bird makes with the twigs and the whatnot, not to follow and not to nesty nasty. The Nest Light is a lovely lamp that’s sure to make your house into a home. Not only will it make you feel like a warm mother hen because of its soft glow, the light inside works like an egg: removable and transportable.

R to the Izzy, G to the Izzay

R to the Izzy, G to the Izzay

Hey how’s it hangin? So well? Excellent! How are you doing on lamps today? Could use a few more? I’ve got one for you right here. A weird one! It’s called the “Riga” lamp and designer Markus Maurer made it just weird enough for your wild industrial design sensibilities. The Riga asks Maurer and its entire audience: how does one make balance perfectly visible?

In lamp form.

Flamenco Shineathon

Flamenco Shineathon

A chandelier from the outer reaches of space and inspiration. A dance, a movement, and a powerful expression. For the designer, a very special moment captured, a very strong emotion turned into sculpture and hung from the ceiling. Made of brass and tied together with screws. White outside of pieces for a grayscale effect, inside reflections of shiny fabulous brasses for shadowplay inside the piece itself and inside the room it blesses itself with.

Lights Are Upon You

Lights Are Upon You

Go on, brush your shoulders off. You’d better be clean when those big ol’ stage lights get a’blarin on you. Those barn doors are wide open, and you’re sweating bullets! But these aren’t them, no! We’re talking about something different. These are the beautiful, home version of lights used for stage plays or photography. These are called “Lutz” lights, or die scheinwerfer! And they’re coming to a home studio near you!

Spot of Lamp for You Darling?

Spot of Lamp for You Darling?

Perhaps a dash of second-hand cups? That’s what this installation is made up of. There’s nothing more “green” in the world, in my mind, than re-using items that have been discarded by another person. Not necessarily discarded in this case, as these cups were certainly taken from places other than a garbage can. More like goodwill shops and all that. Each cup’s got a hole punched up the bottom of it, light put in, at the end of a rod. Lovely!

Come Give Me A Gentle Squeeze

Come Give Me A Gentle Squeeze

Sometimes I really consider myself to be a fusspot when it comes to stress relief. I find squeezing stress balls too childish and the juggling of those Zen balls is best left to monks. One thing that has taken my fancy is lights and the unique odd ways in which I can use it to my advantage. Diana Lin’s d°light Bubbles looks dandy enough on their own, but I totally dig the interactive aspect. The bunch just beckons you to come over and give them a delightful squeeze. They even give out a ‘whoo’ sound at every pinch; sweet silicone bubble LEDs.

One Light to Rule Them All

One Light to Rule Them All

One billion events, millions of lighting experts. That’s what happens. When you’ve got an event that needs lighting, you see a specialist. Freelance workers who get all up in the party lighting it with the equipment they’re known for, each group being hired for their materials. Well I say to you, no more! One light to rule them all! This here is the Helios 700W! And basically anyone can use it.

Soap With No Suds

Soap With No Suds

And you won’t even complain! Because this is Soap Light, a portable lamp serenading as a bar of soap! Fantastic! It comes with this charger base, predictably fashioned as a soap dish and once fully charged you can place the bar wherever you fancy. Using the touch interface you can switch it on-off but to dim or brighten the light, you need to rub the bar. I can picture elegant bars all over my room.

LED Destroys Incandescent Forever

LED Destroys Incandescent Forever

I’m not sayin this lamp is going to kill incandescent lamps altogether, but it’s gonna slay some of them I bet, for sure. It’s called the “Allure” and it’s a pretty amazing floor lamp. It looks like a fantastic set of tentacles. Multiple light sources from the same lamp – that’s amazing! Amazing! And not only that, but while the lamp base is meant to stay in place on the ground, the lamp post rotates. Excellent!

Biggest. Lamp. Ever.

Biggest. Lamp. Ever.

It’s the extra extra extra large lamp. The name is “°XXXL(amp)”, by Eden Design. Without a doubt, the designers claim to be “space defining” with this mother is well founded. Inspired by the shape of a Chinese lantern, sort of like the top of a mushroom if you know what I mean. Twelve segments of pure upside-down hot air balloon. Bigger than my living room. Better than any lamp ever. Ladies like to stand under it.
