Light Ceremony is a very creative concept lamp that delves on the theme of the proverbial tea ceremony. In the most basic form, it is a ceramic/wooden bowl with a matching scoop. You could pour light in, or out of the lamp using the scoop. Both the objects communicate seamlessly via wireless tech to understand gestures and transfer light. We doubt it would be of any real use for lighting things, but as far as ambiance and idea is concerned, this lamp rocks.
We like Marko Vuvkovic‘s Grass Lamp. The design is fresh, simple and beautiful. The designer intended to bring a part of “nature inside the house” and that part comes from the patch of grass sitting sweetly with the curves of this lamp. A light source is located directly above this patch of grass to help it grow, and obviously, to do the part of a lamp. Made out of PVC plastic, the lamp is available in floor lamp and pendant variations.
We have no idea how designer Luisa De Los Santos-Robinson made these lamps, but we are now sure that if there really were dragons, this is what their tails would look like.
Nothing says good design like a product that can have an impression on the onlooker in the first glance. The Wrappie Lamp we believe, manages to do just that, even though the design is quite simple, but with tones of elegance. The lamp has been designed by Tomasz Pydo and was on display at the 2011 edition of Make Me! exhibition in Poland.
Nuke Lamp from Veneridesign has been built in the infamous shape of the mushroom cloud that shows up after a nuclear blast. It’s quite a gloomy way to light up the room, but it terms of authenticity, the struck quite close to the real deal. The team used fluid dynamic simulations to capture the cloud’s true form, accurately modelling the lamp after the cloud.
Japanese designer Nosigner has created a lamp that echoes the soft glow of the moon, together with imperfections of the lunar surface. The topographically-accurate replica holds an LED light, and stands as a symbol of hope.
Symbiosis lamp from designer Rafael Morgan makes use of an “internal spring mechanism” that lets it latch on to various objects that can be cylindrical in shape, creating interesting patterns for the lamp. Well, we have no idea what that “internal spring mechanism” is, but it behaves suspiciously like rubber.
With the doodle lamp, you don’t really have to worry about wires and sockets. All you need to do is paint a good line from the lamp to a power source, and let the silver in the lamp do its job.
Modern way of life gives us little time to socialize, mostly keeping us all busy in our own lives. Living Light is something that encourages people to socialize. Designed by Joon&Jung, the lamp manages its brightness considering the number of people around it. As the group of people close to the lamp increases in numbers, the lamp “blossoms like a flower” steadily increasing the amount of light and even spreading its own petals. The maximum brightness this lamp can reach is 1750 Lumen (equivalent to 220V 120W incandescent light bulb), while consuming just 15W of power.
There is an inherent beauty in the Steampunk-ish old timey lamps from artist Cory Barkman. He has just sent us images of the latest batch of lamps. Like their predecessors, these lamps are made mostly from repurposed materials. Cory starts off work with a design and idea, foraging for exact parts that would blend, work well with the lamps. If the artist is unable to find parts for the meticulously designed lamps, he gets to work forging them by himself.
