Squishy Light Spheres

Squishy Light Spheres

Infectious is a light concept made up of modular silicone spheres charged in a set-up one could call a luminous tree. The spheres react to each other so pile them up to bring on the illumination. It’s soft, squishy, and the kind of lighting that makes everyone look good. No word on when it’ll hit the market but looks like the French will be the first to enjoy.

Replacing Candle-lit Dinners With Firefly

Replacing Candle-lit Dinners With Firefly

The Firefly Table is honestly a very neat concept that I can foresee being snapped into production. Intended for outdoor cafés and restaurants, the idea is to use a solar lamp instead of romantic candlelights for illumination. The centrally placed lamp pops up to emit a soft glow while projecting any form of branding (via stencils) to the floor-space below. Imagine being “popped the question” in this unique fashion, or even attracting sponsors with this extra added value. Tobasco, Heinz, you listening?

Lights at night, nightlights. This project goes by the name of “Intersection Signalétique.” It’s pretty! Lights from up in the sky, down to the street, up into your eyeballs.

Organic Lampstick

Organic Lampstick

This is a lamp with a dimmer. Does it look like a dimmer lamp you’ve ever seen before? It reminds me of a lamp I saw in an abandoned house once; it moved up and down smoothly from the ceiling based on how much you pulled down or touched up. Well what do you know, the lamp we’re talking about right now does something very similar! Instead of the lamp moving, this, the “Etirement” lamp, has easily adjustable intensities of light.

Getting A Drip On Light

Getting A Drip On Light

The Ring-ge-roo Light shuttles between innovative, unique and kitsch! It definitely takes the sting out of a hospital drip, which is loathsome yet essential. The uniqueness lies in the way the design uses LED and water for effectively refracting light and creating an eccentric ambiance. I wouldn’t mind hanging this off my arm; just to get some special effects I’d use colored water, as recommended by the designer.

Stuck to Rivers and Lakes

Stuck to Rivers and Lakes

This right here is called “Waterfall.” It’s totally beautiful. Let’s just get that straight right now. Next, let’s talk about what the heck it is. It’s a project by designer Barbara Bona that came to her brain while she was studying the space of a window. Noting that while during the day, a window shows natural daylight, during the night, it’s totally just a black, blank screen. So she decided to take advantage of the space and totally light up the night.

Mozart Of Lights

Mozart Of Lights

So you can’t be a conductor of any musical symphony nor do you have any creativity in painting and art. Tough luck, but what if I gave you this magical wand, that allowed you to transform your ceiling into a magical landscape of color LEDs, that brighten up and dim at the flick of your wrist, wouldn’t you be the Mozart of lights? Draw The Lights makes you a capable light conductor! What I mean is that clusters of LEDs take command from this “light brush” in your hand, and sparkle to create mesmerizing ambient settings.

Ambient Lights Get Powered By Nothing

Ambient Lights Get Powered By Nothing

Well almost nothing. Here’s how the deal works: you have a multiple socket strip and probably using up all the sockets to power your gadgets. Its switched on and you keep forgetting to unplug or switch off the unused gadget from the strip and waste energy. With the Saving Energy Multitap, the so called wasted energy is no longer wasted….it gets sucked up to power this set of cool looking touch-sensitive ambient lights on the wall. The job of these ambient lights is to subtly remind you that you need to power off buddy!

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.
