Light is Random...

Light is Random…

Like mushrooms randomly sprouting from the Earth, this lamp array design by Jaren Goh takes a whimsical and asymmetric approach to lighting a room. With interchangeable shades for versatility, this lamp dubbed “Lampost” takes it modern and minimal lines and softens them up by the simple use of non-symmetrical placement. Intended for larger spaces, this lovely light source will definitely be a focal point in any room…that is, until the Cheshire Cat arrives.

Intravenous Lamp

Intravenous Lamp

For those of us not of the botanical persuasion and do not practice photosynthesis to get our nutrient fix, I present to you the “Lichtinfusion” Lamp from Christian Maas. This lamp design is a compelling and evocative visual double entendre, reminding us all that light is life and blocking out the sun is still a bad idea, no matter what George W. Bush thinks.

Walk Towards the Light...

Walk Towards the Light…

Most of us take for granted the fundamental human need for enlightenment. No, I am not talking about being one with the Universe or counting beads. Besides, I look positively horrid in orange. I am talking about the simple need to physically see after the sun sets. We are not like most other creatures on Earth and don’t come equipped with super sweet night vision eyeballs.

Recycled Packaging Lights by Anke Weiss

Recycled Packaging Lights by Anke Weiss

The packaging lights show the transformation of a mass-product into a unique item. Through individual adaptation the packaging of products like juice, cookies or soap gain a new purpose. The packaging which purpose it is to support the sale of its content becomes a product itself. It survives the point where it usually turns into garbage.

Lamp Goes Here

Lamp Goes Here

First impressions upon seeing the “Tall & Tiny” sticker design by Alice Rosignoli, is that the secret society of Illuminati have murdered yet another pair of lamps and Interpol are busy investigating their demise. My second impression is; cool! This 2D sticker lamp design flattens traditional 3D designs more than the U.S. dollar and is a fun way to be hip, save space and still confuse the hell out of your parents when they visit and ask “are you ever going to grow up?”

A Droplet of Light

A Droplet of Light

The Drop Lamp combines Murano mastery and engineering in a suspended lamp that looks like a droplet of water frozen in space. The natural characteristics of Murano means no two lamps are identical, that is until you accidentally drop them. Then they all look the same – a million pieces of broken glass or “tears” because you just know this lamp is a budget buster if it ever goes into production.

Lighter-Than-Air Lights

Lighter-Than-Air Lights

LED technology is probably the greatest thing to happen in illumination since the invention of the candle. LED’s are energy efficient, cool to the touch and give off a clean, attractive light. Designer Luc Schouten has elevated LED usage to new heights with this whimsical “Floating Light” design that uses helium filled latex balloons anchored by a small LED base.

Soft Lighting Find Its Way

Soft Lighting Find Its Way

Reflected light on paper can be annoying, especially when one is reading. Soft Light provides the user with a luminescence that can be positioned to best suit the user’s needs. It functions both as indoor and outdoor lighting, and gives the user the flexibility to “mould” its form to suit specific environments and conditions.

The Sound of Light

The Sound of Light

Not really what you think. The NewLight desk lamp has an integrated MP3 player. Although details are sparse, you can also load up audio books and have the lamp read to you while you fall asleep. Interesting concept. Perhaps the lamp light can slowly dim on its own at a preset time.

It's a PC, No It's a Lamp. Wait, It's Kinda Both

It’s a PC, No It’s a Lamp. Wait, It’s Kinda Both

Turning Lamp is a PC mounted on a lamp base. It uses tactile interfaces people are familiar with when turning lamps on so a pull of a cord activates one of the 4 faces. Each face can display something different, i.e. – weather, news, email, music player, etc.

Follow The Pebbles

Follow The Pebbles

We all know Hansel and Gretel left a trail of breadcrumbs and pebbles to find their way back but what happens if life ever imitates art? Would it work? Breadcrumbs would obviously degrade so designer Mi-Sook Lee focused on pebbles that light up. The butterfly shaped rocks would light the way back to civilization for any wood be travelers lost in the maze of trees.
