Would You Confuse Them For Pool Balls?

Would You Confuse Them For Pool Balls?

I know I would! The Field Roamers are illuminated spherical objects that are a product of experimentation with the primary goal of seeing how “light bounces could affect the appearance of geometry with varying surfaces in low light.” The lights have no explicit moving parts but their illuminated tracks and the obvious form indicate that you could just roll them along the surface. Cool roving lights I say!

Interactive Tiles

Interactive Tiles

The I-Quad uses tile shaped LED electronic boards held together by a simple frame and interacts with external devices via USB or wireless. Each tile is capable of a low-res, almost dot matrix-like resolution. Essentially anything can be displayed across these tiles; from communication, entertainment, even ambient lighting.

Sexy Lighting With Metal And Moss

Sexy Lighting With Metal And Moss

What do you get when you marry metal to Spanish moss? That’s easy, you get the Oasis Lalune! Just ignore my silly joke and look into the option of this exotic lighting that very simply relies on moss to add some character to a metal frame. A part of the Oasis collection for Plato, Lalune transforms easily from an outdoor lampshade to a floor lamp by adding on a stand.

The Brave Little Light Cable

The Brave Little Light Cable

The entire cord is stays whichever way you style it. It’s got a flexible electrical lining that allows the entire chord to take part in the way the lamp sits. It’s like, totally alive. Every style is unique. Not like those crappy normal lights. Think of all the things you could use this for! I’d bring it with constructing with me. Next we need it to have some A.I. in there so it could go the next step: follow me around and totally snake smart.

Power of The Revolving Light Switch

Power of The Revolving Light Switch

Gradually as dawn breaks the rays of the sun bathe the sky with its warm glow. A meditative effect that sees itself being transformed as the MAGI! With this concept you get a two-part team that tangos together to perform a synchronized dance. Rotate the power switch and the overhead lamp progressively opens to reveal the light. Like the glorious sun shining over you, urging you to feel your inner light, the MAGI beams through.

Second Bulb, Insects Beware!

Second Bulb, Insects Beware!

If you still have incandescent bulbs, then I will now beat you with a silly stick. Fortunately for you here’s one more way to get use out of those archaic bulbs. The Bulb Hugger is a thermally charged light that wraps around any incandescent. Whenever your incandescent turns off or if the power goes out, the secondary light automatically turns on for up to 5 hours. If you’ve got these bulbs outdoors, an upper ring containing insect repellent vaporizes from heat, keeping bugs away.

Sneaky Lamp Peeps Around Corners

Sneaky Lamp Peeps Around Corners

It is the Snake Lamp. Made with a “unique” polypropylene sheet twisting and turning it’s way into your heart. You heard? It’s got a bunch of turns you ain’t never seen, and all without glue or welding. Just a mad, mad, magnet party.

For your triangle house.

Experience Summer Glow During Winter

Experience Summer Glow During Winter

Hollywood movies showcase the perfect winter day effectively, however the truth is quite contrary. Look at the snow on the driveway! How gloomy and dark the skies are! After you’re done with the shoveling and nursing your frostbitten fingers, it takes a while to really appreciate the snowman or the snowflakes. If you were to have the Luminaarparaad installation on your lane, wouldn’t it make the drab, cold winters more cheerful?

Sight And Sound Satisfaction

Sight And Sound Satisfaction

A bulb that somehow manages to include a speaker as well, does this sound farfetched to you? Does to me, but considering the possibilities available to us in the future, maybe we will have something like this in our living rooms and pubs. Wireless speakers are there as are light bulbs, so you basically put them together in a rather sophisticated way, citing technological advances as your friend.

This Sconce Makes Me Want Some Artichoke Dip

This Sconce Makes Me Want Some Artichoke Dip

Always one to rip off the hard work Mother Nature did millions of years ago,  Janne Kyttänen swoops in again to steal all the glory for herself with this “Dahlia” sconce that is inspired by the “mathematics of nature and the arrangement of flower petals.” Personally, I’m not a huge fan of this derivative work, If I remember correctly, I believe I saw da Vinci put out something pretty like this at the Salone del Mobile in 1512.

Dock…Speaker…No, It’s a Light

Dock…Speaker…No, It’s a Light

Life isn’t simple anymore. You work minimum two jobs; you multitask and make the most of a situation. Yes, life sucks…so is it fair that we make our electronics and gadgets do only one job at a time? No ways! They too need to labor like us, give us the maximum benefit of their existence. We don’t want only an iPod dock; we want it to have speakers and may be some light. Gottcha! This one has it all!

A New Use For That Old Fishing Line

A New Use For That Old Fishing Line

If you have an anxiety about chaotic arrays of tangled knots, then this hanging light from Francois Azambourg isn’t for you. If however, you enjoy watching your friends drunkenly stumble into things, become entangled, and possibly asphyxiate themselves, then boy are you in the right place. Believably called Brindilles, this 3 foot wide fixture hangs down 8½ feet and makes use of 108 LEDs to flash in the forest of fiber optic cable. I’m also going to go out on a limb and say this isn’t cat friendly either.
