We have to admit we were mislead into believing that we would be looking at lamps. That’s just not what you expect to run into when you read “Screw Me.” The lamps by Jonathan Rowell make use of a screw like function to change their alignment and setting using the twists of the screw, but [...]
Amsterdam based Studio Drift has created a collection of chandeliers that would be simply defined as very fragile, and so very cool. The collection is titled Fragile Future and features chandeliers made from bronze structures, LED lights and real dandelions.
Vintage themed lamps and objects that artist Cory Barkman (previously) creates, come from a very elaborate process. The stunning design and the beautiful appearance are of course, a big part of the job, but the story of materials used in making these lamps is impressive in itself. Most of the objects used in the construction [...]
CMYK bulb by designer Dennis Parren has a penchant for casting colorful shadows. It has one main a main bulb for the usual lighting purpose, and colored LEDs in red, green and blue on its back that cast shadows in cyan, magenta and yellow. While that setting alone could be quite the killer, the lamp [...]
Classic lightbulbs don’t mix with water, but they sure would look super cool if these images by AuraDesign are anything to go by. The Czech design studio has come up with a lightbulb named Edie, which is supposed to work when submerged. The idea of Edie is to mix two very important, but still separate [...]
Endowed with enough style to make gearheads happy, these lamps by Deron Dixon have their roots in old car parts. Various parts come together to create the base for the lamp, from which projects a stem to hold the shade and bulb. Deron says it’s a process of trial and error, where the best laid [...]
Now that’s a shiny treat we’d be happy to take a bite of. We’d rather eat gummy bears rather than hang them, but we wouldn’t quite mind them on a chandelier either. Artist Kevin Champeny created this Gummy Bear chandelier that goes 31-inches in diameter and includes 5000 gummy bears diffusing the sweet, colorful light [...]
Gone are the good old days when you could keep humans as objects. You know, like the kind who stand in the background holding a lamp or serving their feudal lord without as much as being perceived or acknowledged. To those nostalgic for the old times, the Embarakiya lamps can provide some relief. Sadly they [...]
Chocolate lamp by Alexander Lervik is built up on the concept of light versus dark, which we thinks works very well with the mix of an electric bulb covered in a lamp shade of chocolate. It’s a light that gives no light at all, until the heat from the bulb starts to thaw the chocolate [...]
Going beyond the DSLR, or maybe around the DSLR, Etsy seller Sandra Díaz has this DSRL lamp that is shaped much like a camera lens. The pendant lamp is a replica of a reflex camera lens and happens to be handmade out of cedar wood with water-based varnish and beewax finish. All the camera lens [...]
An interesting piece of modern design done graciously, the Kyudo Floor Lamp by Kundalini sports an adjustable sliding track with a diffuser attached to it so as to control and adjust the lamp. The steel structure floor lamp with a glossy varnished paint finish costs $3190 to own.
Sea-life inspired pendant lamps by California based designer Roxy Russell take their laser-cut mylar material to a shape that looks much like Jellyfish. The Medusae collection has a lot of different forms to show, each in some way similar to the tentacled fish of the sea. Someone should probably look at Cthulhu now, we don’t [...]
Commissioned by Studio Job, the Eiffel Tower lamp is made out of patinated bronze, with a polished bronze lampshade.
Frank Lamp has a cheerful design that would make you adore its pet dog-like stance. The design by Thai company Pana Objects is quite simple; it’s a box with four legs. It is the finishing and the play on the viewer’s imagination that make the lamp look like much more than what it actually is.
Going fully by the literal meaning, these lamps by Brooklyn-based artist Stephen Shaheen take form of a humanoid, only to replace their heads with light bulbs. That’s how they become headlights. The artist’s idea for the project titled “American Socket” is to explore the border between art, design and architecture with this creation. When arranged [...]
