A Halo of Light to Save You

A Halo of Light to Save You

As the flames get hotter you stumble in panic looking for your way out of the maze of hallways that seem so familiar yet alien at the moment. Smoke stings your eyes as you desperately search for any signs of escape. Follow the Halo, it will guide you.

Hanging in Orbit

Hanging in Orbit

This pendant lamp from Lucie Koldova is dubbed Orbital Light for obvious formal reasons, but all I know is that it should have been in 2001: a Space Odyssey. The LED diodes that line the inside of the ribs cast a kind of omnidirectional glow on all nearby surfaces, giving the interior a very futuristic ambient light. The project was apparently designed for grand-scale interiors and halls, but maybe my kitchenette would also be appropriate.

Got a Light?

Got a Light?

I sure do. It’s about the size of a credit card and powered by a small cell. Flip up the lightbulb shaped cut-out to switch on the soft, mellow, glow of bliss. What’s the point? Novel – next time you have a bright idea, you can have an actual lightbulb “bling!” on.

Illuminated Magnets

Illuminated Magnets

You all remember playing with magnets when you were little right? Just for a little nostalgia, check out the Magnetic Lamp by Seokmoon Woo. It’s designed to look like the classic horseshoe magnet but it glows! Just stick it to any conducting metal (steel is of preference) and the rubber switch attached to the feet switches the light on. Arrange a whole mess of them for a dynamic architectural mural of magnetic lights.

Fire Hose Illuminates Your Smoldering Memories

Fire Hose Illuminates Your Smoldering Memories

Because of a fire’s tendency to disrupt a building’s power supply, Firefighters often lack enough light to effectively douse the flames. To help fix this problem, Duck Image co.’s Aurora hose nozzle uses an internal turbine to power eight LED’s that light up and refract off of the stream of water. This not only illuminates the direction of their firefighting efforts to other firefighters and victims, but makes for truly awe-inspiring Lightsaber flashlight battles.

Reading by Candlelight Never Seemed so Cheap

If you miss the good old days of coin operated phone booths, you might like Jethro Macey’s Coin Lamp. Powered by its greed for loose change, the light forces our awareness of power consumption through personal expense and discourages our appetite for kilowatt hours. That being said, I can easily see this lamp becoming a permanent fixture down at the local Laundromat.

Crystal Comb

Crystal Comb

It is really amazing how bees make honey. It is even more amazing how delicious natural honey is straight out of the honey comb. Yar Rassadin, Russian designer, has captured this honey making process with the Beehouse Lamp. The lamps honey-filled cells are created from honey-yellow Swarovsky crystals and the comb is made from white bend plastic- a brilliant depiction of a honeycomb.

He That Would Have The Fruit Must Climb The Tree

He That Would Have The Fruit Must Climb The Tree

Some might see this design for the Pendant Light and say “hey, that looks just like a bag stuck in a tree.” I am one of those people who would say that, and so is the designer of the Pendant Light, Ed Vince, who looked up one day, saw a bag stuck in a tree and said “Hey, that looks like something that could be made into a lamp; I want a Bag Stuck in a Tree in my house.”

With Enough Power to Light a Small Moon

With Enough Power to Light a Small Moon

Behold! The power of magnetism! With my very own Magnet Light with optional extending components, I will defy all that is sacred in home furnishings by having a bedside light easily accessible in the middle of my Death Star! The fixture’s neck will extend from the very top of the chasm to the center, where I will read a book with only the power of Magnet Light.

Still Haven't Found the Big Dipper

Still Haven’t Found the Big Dipper

There are a great many lights and chandeliers out there that emulate an explosion of light through glass and lines of refraction.  The Constellation Chandelier from Studio 1 Thousand however, accomplishes this feat through the simple use of LED’s and bent copper stems that array downward from a wrapped base.  Upon closer inspection, the clamps securing the LED clusters might even bring to mind Ingo Mauer’s Zettelz lamps, although this is anything but derivative.

Let Your Box of Light Shine

Let Your Box of Light Shine

Delft Wall Lamps were designed by David Ryan, as a tribute to famous artist Vermeer. Vermeer was known for his use of light as well as his paintings depicting the city of Delft, a place where Vermeer spent most of his life. The Delft lamps are made to form a simple box that gives off a warm and glowing light that will add just the right amount of soothing light to anywhere they are placed.
