Bring a cloud to your living room, and appreciate its silver lining. Or maybe you could just enjoy having a nice, fluffy designer lamp. The Cloud Lamp might loom dark, but we’re pretty sure it can create a nice ambience.
Franken Edison Light matches up with the light bulb by Edison, takes inspiration from Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, and has that Victorian Steampunk look going about it. The two Edison bulbs on the lamp are placed inside two 8-inch mouth blown globes as a salute to the old Frankenstein movies. The movies placed two separate spheres that would catch lightning and send it through to Frankenstein. While these globes aren’t going to catch lightning, they do make a statement of style towards the form of Van de Graff generators used in the movies.
The Bankers Lamp – Revisited is probably what all bankers lamps dream of becoming one day. A creation of Cory Barkman (previously), the lamp follows the style of the artist, that is, an old world look that is somewhat steampunk-ish, but mostly elegant, stylish, and functional.
Bulbing lamp takes its interesting shape by following the ideals of optical illusion. Bulbing lamps are 2 dimensional lamps, created in wireframe design to give the illusion of being three dimensional. The lamps are made from acrylic glass and sit on a wooden base. Available in several designs, the lamps are available for pre-order from Kickstarter.
Here is a simplistic view at life if there ever was one. Pinch this butt lamp to light it up, slap the butt to switch it off. That’s just the magic of glowing butts, where the sun shines right out of the arse. The glowing butt lamp by London based designer Joseph Begley is called Slap It, and offers “a multi-sensory experience to make you smile.”
Spidey’s hand lights up your room with this 3D deco light. Normally, it might not be very wise for Spiderman to try maneuvers while his hand is stuck in a wall, but as a light, it could work pretty well. Costs $33.
Contrary to its appearance of sitting above the stem of a champagne glass, the lamp is almost anticlimactically named People Lamp. Designed by Pedro Mendes, the lamp has a clear champagne glass like stem, topped by a touch of color around the switch and the bulb holder. Priced at €64.67 (~$88).
Zippo Gasolier is worth all the love for looking this grand. Designed by Luka Pirnat, the gasolier matches up the classic Zippo lighters to the candelabra. A set of seven Zippo lighters sit on the menorah, hailing a remembrance to both, the gasolier and the zippo lighters. Come to think of it, Zippos are especially suited for a design like this; they won’t be easily blown off, and they look pretty darn good in the setting.
Light and water have the power to create very imaginative bulbs, like the water balloon light bulbs we see here. The shape of the bulbs is a cue to the way water balloons inflate under a faucet, and also of the irregularities you could expect in water in a setting like that. The bulbs are backlit by LEDs, and the light is diffused and distributed by the bubbles of water in the bulb.
Float Chandelier by New York based design studio Bower, makes use of magnets to keep lights tied up into place. A central magnet keeps the magnetic LED lights at the top and bottom of the chandelier in place, holding its shape together with magnetic tension. The design and looks are pretty interesting, but we imagine a lot more could be done with the setup; perhaps a few more additions to give the floating lights more flair.
