The Shady Illusion Lamp.


yoy_light_02

Now you see it, now you don’t. This clever lamp is our latest obsession.  Simply called “LIGHT, it brings new meaning to “throwin’ shade.” Flip it on and light shines through a finely cut hole to create the illusion of a classic lamp shade shape against your wall. Minimal with a touch of humor, it’s attractive, interesting and a total conversation starter.

Slap It

Joseph Begley is an english designer with a great sense of humor. His latest creation cleverly entitled Slap It shows it perfectly. Slap It is a lamps made out of silicone, that really looks like a butt, which turns on and off when you slap it. If you are a little more gentle, you can also pinch it, it works just fine too.

Octopus Shaped Cirrata Lamp


general

Unusually-shaped sea creature Cirrata, a suborder of octopuses, was a source of inspiration for designer Markus Johansson. His glowing, delicately formed lamp is meant to light up the “darkness of the ocean.” The tentacle-like base creates the illusion that the fixture is floating across the surface it sits on, or the ocean floor where the idea was born. Who would have thought this lamp was made from Corian, that solid surface material most often used for kitchen and bathroom countertops.

Creative Babele Lamp


02 06 03

A lamp Babele created by Manifattura Italiana Design, in the shape of a classic table lamp silhouette, is comprised of wooden sections made to be disassembled and reassembled. Starting from a classic abat-jour (lampshade) silhouette and playing with it: disassembling it in plain sections, shuffling and putting them back in order, creating and defining light gaps. It’s an ever changing object with an innate anchitectural nature. A simple figure, an idea, a lamp that illuminates and inspires creativity.

Detail.MGX By Dan Yeffet.


Creative ceiling pendants created by Israeli designer Dan Yeffet are called “Detail.MGX”. The lampshade is made with the unmistakable pattern of a fingerprint. He stretched his print around a sphere, its unique swirls becoming channels through which light would shine.

Fosterlamp


The Fosterlamp is a tad minimal, a touch space age and plenty mod. Easy functionality, a diminutive size and a frosted glow make it a great task light or nightstand accent. The simple design harkens back to the mid-century era and will fit into many styles of decor.

Flat’s Where It’s At.


Gone are the days that bigger is better. Streamlined packaging designs like the flat pack Spline Light are in… for good. The simple yet elegant design of this matt black pendant light helps save on shipping costs and ease up on the environment. With an interesting shape and unique shadow-cast, it don’t look half-bad either.

Hanging In Orbit.


This pendant lamp from Lucie Koldova is dubbed Orbital Light for obvious formal reasons, but all I know is that it should have been in 2001: a Space Odyssey. The LED diodes that line the inside of the ribs cast a kind of omnidirectional glow on all nearby surfaces, giving the interior a very futuristic ambient light. The project was apparently designed for grand-scale interiors and halls, but maybe my kitchenette would also be appropriate.

The Wonderlamp Collection.


I’m not quite sure what my recent fascination with lighting is, but I’ve been coming across some extremely unique examples of ways to light a house or apartment.  Belgian studio ‘Studio Job’ together with Dutch designer Pieke Bergmans presented their ‘wonderlamp’ collection at Italian gallery Dilmos during Milan Design Week.  Studio Job creates monumental objects made of cast bronze, while Bergmans has made a name for herself developing mouth-blown crystal forms which coagulate into fluid forms.  For ‘wonderlamp’ the light giving blubs of Bergmans are linked to seven bronze objects from Studio Job.  With the collaboration, the unique style of both designers remains intact.

The Block Lamp.


Each part of these ingeniously designed light pieces is hand cast and undergoes an extremely long cooling process to avoid cracking later on if exposed to strong temperature changes. The matte bulb shape is sand-blasted and the electric bulb is included when you get one.  The Block Lamp has been showered with design awards including: Excellent Swedish Design in 1998, the Design Plus Award at the Ambiente Trade Fair in Frankfurt in 1999 as well as the Best New Product at the Accent Show in New York in 1999.  And probably for good reason, this thing is simple, concise, and attention grabbing design is one of a kind.

The TetraBox Light.


Designer Ed Chew takes a green step in the right direction with the TetraBox lamp, a light object made from discarded drink packets that would have otherwise ended up in landfills already packed to the brim. The design is achieved by unfolding the packets and refolding them into hexagonal and pentagonal sections that are then pieced together to form a geodesic sphere or any other desired shape. Here, the Epcot-like ball makes an attractive overhead light and casts an impressive web of shadows and shapes on the surrounding space.  Super dope.

GEO Magnetic Lamp.


GEO Magnetic is quite an awesome lamp as far as design thinking goes.  The basic lamp is a halo of light that glides up and down a steel rail, using magnetic attraction.  The base halo holds a ball shape switch that looks suspended but is held in place using a fine thread.  There are three levels of illumination and the electric current flowing into each section varies in intensity, this allows the spherical switch to shift its position to on/off.  Super sick.  Besides being a desk lamp, the GEO Magnetic doubles up as a romantic moodlight when the light halo is glided closer to the base.

Murakami Rocking Chair.


The Murakami Chair’s attached lamp powered by your rocking back and forth, a good idea. Designed by Rochus Jacob. The Chair’s OLED lamp even senses when it’s light or dark out. And it has a battery pack which stores ‘your rocking’ in the daylight.

The Pouring Light Lamp.


Human actions play such a significant role in design; it’s either evident in the form or in the function. In the Pouring Light, the action is evident in the form and is delightfully executed as well. With the motive of giving off “an emotional flow of light”, the lights linger on with a mesmerizing effect thanks to the use of phosphorescence in the “water” part. Yeongwoo suggests the use of LED lights to conserve energy, and my suggestion to him: get this in the market ASAP son.
