Artist Asher calls his ReTech lamps “one of a kind functional art.” The stylish lamps with a classic-theme vibe are made mostly for reclaimed/recycled materials that the artist has found or obtained, and make a very prominent appearance in some of these lamps.
Andrew O’Malley made this pulsing heart lamp for a commission earlier this year. Of course, there is no reason though to not make more of these wonderful lamps. It is quite the usual heart shaped lamp you could find anywhere, except the two Arduinos in it make it pulsate like the heart it is supposed to be.
It’s been a while since we laid eyes on something, and immediately turned into fans. The Surface Tension Lamp is one of these things, and we’re totally in love with the idea. A bubble forms at the end of the lamp, and while it does soon burst, for the fleeting moment it lasts for, it puts up an amazing light show. Checkout the videos below to see it in action, and praise the good folks at Front Design for their work.
A piece of furniture made from aircrafts is the perfect place for the office of an airline company. Designer Paul Coudamy made this lighting piece for Flown Mobilier Airline. Named F-Light, the system uses recycled Airbus A300 windows that were curved and attached into a shape fit to be used for lighting.
Guns hardly do a job that has anything to do with spreading light or illumination, except when they’re made of ceramics and have light bulbs on top. The guns are handcrafted from ceramics with great attention to detail and stand nearly three feet tall. Priced at $450.
CFLs could look a lot more better with a waffle cone base and ice cream looks. Actually, anything looks better with waffles and ice cream appearance. The lamps are the work of designer Nahoko Koyama.
Taiwanese designer Jeff Dah-Yue Shi made this wonderland kind of place using dimmable LEDs in floors, ceilings and walls, along with an intelligent use of bamboo that gives the place an optical illusion type of appearance. Each bamboo rhombus has an LED at its base as the lighting source.
Motorlight Wall by designer Jake Dyson is a remote controlled mechanical lamp that loosely goes from a lightsaber to a fan at the touch of a button. The wall mounted lamp is a variable angle uplight that can go from a beam of 10 degrees to 120 degrees, allowing users to have a wide range of options. The lights can be controlled by a remote either individually or as a series.
Things like this send our geeky side tingling. The Beaker Lab Light is made from repurposed chemistry lab equipment, demonstrated by the presence of beakers and clampers and the sheer fascination of chemistry. Costs $249.
We have become so acclimatized to security and CCTV cameras, we won’t even take another look at something of that shape. Although, this design by Antrepo does make us think that the shape would be pretty well suited for table lamps. Spoticam has been designed with a somewhat robotic shape and style, but at the end of the day it is a security cam shaped desk lamp, and can be maneuvered as such.
