Modular Lamp by Kreaton

I’m not knocking this lamp, but don’t these ‘translucent green modular blocks’ kind of look like Lego bricks?

As much a translucent sculpture as a source of illumination. The most provocative aspect of this lamp is the fact that it doesn’t exist–until you create it. Kreaton is a modular lamp designed to change the way you see light. With a starter set of a clear, polycarbonate lamp base and two kits of translucent green modular blocks, you can shape the light source of your fantasies. Includes base and two sets of 72 blocks. Height when fully assembled in this shape is 10″.

Face to Face Light

This seems to be a floor sample piece, hence the price reduction, but man-oh-man is it a lovely light fixture (made of velcro!). It looks like this particular retailer won’t take additional orders, but you can email ([email protected]) or call (tel +34961343234) the manufacturer directly.

At a time when both designers and consumers are overwhelmed with complicated manufacturing techniques and advanced material technologies, Luis Eslava seeks to champion the straighforward through his Face to Face installations made of humble velcro. Since its invention in the 1940′s Velcro has been used for a variety of purposes but is usually hidden from view. Face to Face elevates velcro’s flexibility, transparency and tactility to create beautifully sculptured objects.

Please note sale price is for display pieces only. Limited quantities. We will not accept orders for additional stock on this item. Final sale. Sold as is. All sales subject to availability.

Pivot Sconce

These look like an excellent choice for bedside reading; mounting lights on the wall frees up valuable space on the side table and the pivoting head ensures that you’ll always have direct light on your nighttime novel. Plus, the gunmetal finish is industrial and modern, yet not too sleek (as sometimes chrome can be).

No electrician required. Easy-installation gunmetal grey steel wall-readers simply have an exposed black cloth cord that makes its way down to the outlet. Task light head pivots up, down, around. Industrial on/off toggle switch. Type B 60W or E12 bulb (not included). Mounting hardware included.

Vertebrae Lamp by Amaridian

In the spirit of spookiness, why not add a vertebrae lamp to your decor?*

Finally, lighting with a spine. This fascinating fragmented tower of stacked ceramic ribs was created by South African artisans Gerhard Swart and Anthony Harris, who’ve made an international name for themselves by pushing the boundaries of ceramic expression with both humor and a passion for sculpture and function. Individually cast and assembled ceramic vertebrae.

Measures 46″ with shade.

*(Oh, right, because it’s $2,800…good answer.)

Fibonacci Lampshade

Excellent; when guests comment on your lovely lampshade you can impress them by launching into a lecture that starts with ‘Well, actually, its form is inspired by…’ or you could just say thanks.

A lampshade inspired by the structure made of spirals according to the Fibonacci mathematical sequence: the spiral you find everywhere in natural structures like sunflowers and mussels. Heat-resistant and can be used with any kind of light bulb. Use Fibonacci as a pendant light by pulling it over a lampholder

Bowling Pin Light

It drives me bonkers when there are almost exact same products at different retailers with different prices and names; is the Bowling Pin Light from UO a Knock-off (um, literally)? Does anybody know?

pictured above: Bowling Pin Light, $38.00,Buy it here.

STRIKE! You’ll be bowled over by the Bowling Pin Light, a fun sculpted lamp that turns off when you knock it over (gently). You might just want to get 12! Imported. Wipe clean. 4.75″w, 15.5″h, 4.75″d

The iconic bowling pin has a story to tell. In it’s standing state, it tells us that it is waiting to be knocked over. When the lamp is on its side, the light is off. When the pin stands up tall, it glows.

Mortimer Bust Candle

Ooo, why save this for your creepy mansion when it’ll be just as intriguing in your daily dwelling.

If you’re a loyal reader, you’ll remember we posted this last October, soon after which it flew out the doors and became back ordered before anyone was the wiser. Such is often the case, unfortunately. I do try to alert when popular items are available again, and, as this is, in fact, back in stock, you now can have one or two for your very own.

There’s more to Mortimer than meets the eye! This sculpted candle will keep watch atop any mantel or pedestal in your haunted mansion. Be sure to place Mortimer on a plate or protected surface as his wax is designed to drip and ooze to create an eerie effect as he burns. Size 9 inches tall by 5 inches wide by 3 inches deep.

Available in black or white.

Cornelius and Catherina Wall Lights (Pair)

These are a great pair of wall lights- you see portraits only when they’re on, otherwise they’re just a plain grey or white.

Wall lights as functional art…literally!
This discreet pair of oval canvas wall lights reproduce two “shy” old Master Paintings of the Flemish school that appear only when the lights are switched on. Switched off, the wall lights assume a simple, modern monochromatic look. Turn them on, the features of Cornelius and Catherina will filter trough, giving your decor a refined yet modern look. Sold in pairs. Available with a grey or a white canvas background.
