Globo & Bolio Base Lamp

As you can see from the pictures above, one of these lamps can be used outdoors while the other is most certainly indoor only. They’re both very simple globe designs upgraded into fantastic lighting choices simply by adding color filters and metal accents.

City Honeycombed Hanging Lamp

These remind me of the GrayPants Scrap Lights posted a few weeks ago. These are plastic instead of cardboard, of course, but it’s the same sort of idea.

‘Modern white ceiling lamp hangs with structural interest. Thick walls of hexagon rows form a drum “honeycombed” effect. Made out of corrugated plastic, this light is anything but ordinary. 40-watt max bulb’

Large – 16″ diameter x 6″ high: $135.00
Medium – 12.5″ diameter x 6″ high: $115.00 (on backorder)
Small – 9.6″ diameter x 6″ high: $85.00

Trovato Diamond Lights

The faceted surface of these lights are pretty eye catching. I’d say they look a tad more expensive than they are as well.

Hono Light

Check this out: what functions essentially as a candle is actually an LED. That in itself is nothing particularly new, but this flickering light has a magnetic “match” which turns it on or off.

The Hono Light (2005) combines the warm ambient glow of a candle with advancements in LED technology to create an “object that fascinates us in a moment.” This is Chiaki Murata’s goal for everything in his product line, Metaphys. When lit, Hono flickers like candlelight, with a “flame” produced by an algorithm-programmed LED. Turn it on or off by gently striking a magnetic “match” on the lamp’s surface. The light can also be blown out, like a candle, and will automatically turn back on after 10 seconds. Able to be safely affixed to a wall, Hono has some advantages over traditional wax. It comes with a charger, and one 15-hour charge will keep Hono illuminated for eight hours.

Designer: Chiaki Murata for Metaphys

Faux Wax Candlestick

This will save you hours of patiently waiting for wax to drip. And, if an extra zero doesn’t send your wallet into hiding, turn your attention to the Vesuvius Candlestick (pictured above right) by Ted Muehling.
