You Only Live Once

YD isn’t the ideal place to discuss suicide, but that’s the only inspiration that one gets from the Mint Light #5 You Only Live Once Lamp. The hangman’s noose works in a creepy way as well; tighten the noose to turn it off and loosen it to brighten the lights. Almost poetic in a way….life is a precious gift, if you let your worries depress you, its like the tight noose of this lamp–DARK. Enjoy what you have and it brightens up your life!

    Is that really going to work if the whole things made of glass?
    nice idea though

  • Eric says:

    Interesting idea. Not my particular liking, but some people might be flat out offended by this. I don’t think there is a market for this in America right now…

  • Gwenny says:

    Oh darn. I was so going to buy one until your warning about elderly people. ::cries:: WHY MUST I BE OLD?!?! I so wanted that to go with my wall full of valentine candy boxes.

  • Carl says:

    very bad taste. not for me.

    I like it…but I don’t understand why people would be scared…would make an interesting feature. (this knots have more applications than only hanging people)

    Cheers

      Unfortunately some people harbor ill feelings toward anything resembling a non “P.C.” phrase, item, or in this case object in the shape of a noose. I’m not easily offended but I’m aware that I live in a world where others are. Gutsy move by the designer, but then again isn’t that what designing is all about? Pushing the envelope…

  • Charlotte says:

    I like this and quite frankly I didn’t even realise it was a noose until it was pointed out. I just thought it was cool shaped light.

    Yes. I’m a bit slow.

    This would sell by the container-load in England, where our 'gallows humour' is a way of life. And death. 🙂

    Dark humor. Light at the end of the tunnel. I dig it.
