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.

Dandelion Lights

Dandelion Lights

Ever had the urge to pick up some dandelions and blow away its wisps? I haven’t either, but looking at this wonderful Secret Of Light –Lamp, I wish I could find some dandelion in my backyard! The lamp works in this simple way, shake it gently to switch it on (motion sensors), and blow onto the bulbs to switch it off. Mimic how you would do with the dandelion, only less vigorously.

DuraPower Cell Energized?

DuraPower Cell Energized?

The light is within it, yes within its body, oh so comfy and cozy that you can hardly make out its presence. The idea is to incorporate a minitype LED within the traditional AA or AAA battery sans fuss. This is because you may just want to use a mini flashlight at the drop of a hat or because “Lighting Battery” exists. Whatever the reason, it’s a swanky concept and designer Lu Yi presents a fantastic argument to support the case. May the light be with you…..

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.
