Beute lamps give cardboard a life

Beute lamps give cardboard a life


Packaging is one of the most wasteful practices of our time. No matter how you see it, perfectly good and only slightly used cardboard ends up in dumps. Which is why we like Beute lamps from Germany based designer Michael Wolke. The lamps are made from discarded cardboard, reusing a material that is good enough for use, but would end up in the landfill anyway.

Putting the old into the new, the O2 lamps have a solid walnut or solid maple base, treated with teak oil and hold two Edison vintage carbon filament bulbs.

Indoor post lamps bring street lights inside your home

Indoor post lamps bring street lights inside your home


In the spirit of fairness, if table lamps can go out on the street, post lamps should be allowed in homes. Thankfully, La Lumiere lamps by Gallery Vetri D’Arte aren’t like the modern lifeless cylinders you see on streets, but slightly ornate like the endangered species of beautiful old-timey lamp posts. The floor lamp is about 83 inches tall, weighs about a 100 pounds, and is available in glossy black and white.

High five this lamp to switch it on/off


Having fun and high-fiving a lamp is quite a pathetic way to celebrate, but better a lamp than nothing. Bye-5 lamp by designer Da Deng harps on the theme of positive feedback, by asking users to interact with it by high fives. Seems like fun, except of the, you know.. high fiving the lamp part.

AlessiLux ‘reinvents’ light bulbs into different shapes

AlessiLux ‘reinvents’ light bulbs into different shapes


There’s only a little scope of playing with the design of conventional incandescent light bulb, without messing with the light. Design company AlessiLux got on to the job of reinventing the light bulb, using three young designers to recreate the bulbs in various shapes and sizes. The result comes in the shape of these creatively shaped bulbs, though we cannot exactly be sure if they are quite as good for actual lighting purposes, or just showy glowing pieces.
