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 artist’s idea for the project titled “American Socket” is to explore the border between art, design and architecture with this creation. When arranged […]
We have advanced so much technologically, we now have lightbulbs that can communicate via Wi-Fi and kowtow with smartphones. Well, the iPhone especially, the Android version is still being cooked. The bulbs come with “Light Recipes” from Philips, inspired by their research into biological effects of lighting; in this case, those specifically targeted towards relaxation, […]
We’d never have quite imagined that vintage industrial lighting could be a niche, but going by what we see it just might be, and we welcome the artistic lights with all heart. We’ve admired ReTech lamps, almost been in love with Cory Barkman’s old world lamps, and we’re quite struck by these classy handcrafted lamps […]
