Wet Lamp

An expletive would be apt to describe my total shock and pleasure upon finding this lamp.

“The WET Lamp is an elegant and playful series of glass lamps with an alluring water-submerged light bulb at its center. Putting an exposed light bulb in water certainly raises some eyebrows, but it also creates an intriguingly simple dimmer switch. When a thin silver rod is slid into the water, the WET Lamp turns on and becomes progressively brighter as the rod is submerged.
Despite its precarious concept, the Wet lamp is a completely safe and isolated system of low voltage power.”

Hand blown borosilicate glass, silicone gaskets, silver electrode and contact, 10W Xenon bulb with gold plug.

Creepers.mgx

This is quite stunning.

“Creepers is a complex pattern of fine, light catching leaves made of laser sintered nylon. Clipping an array of Creeper stems on floor-to-ceiling cables creates floating clouds of light that divide interior spaces. Intertwined leaves sprout from the stem in a seemingly random disorder: collectively these surfaces cover a pre-ordained reflector area. Each leaf follows the same structural rules but with considerable scope for individual variance. Thicknesses taper from the main stem to reflectors thin enough to be semi-translucent. The stems contain LEDs that project light onto the leaves.”

Cross Pendant –Now on Sale

“The bold but spare Cross Pendant Light, winner of the red dot award in 2003, is a roto-molded double cruciform lamp that distills the iconic shape to its bones and accomplishes it with ironic refinement. When switched on, it becomes a luminous white or orange plus sign, radiating soft circles of light from each end. Hung laterally in multiples, a group of Pendants forms a constellation of stars. A light bulb fits into the cross’s center through the upper cylinder. The lamp can be suspended from above to achieve a soft, complex glow or placed on a table as a sculptural light source. Bulb (not included) Incandescent 60W/120V/E26/A19.”

Fat Lamp

Hmm, though this is slightly disturbing, it’s also oddly fascinating. It definitely gets points for originality…

“Droog’s 12th presentation in Milan at the Salone del Mobile 2004 was based on the concept of going slow. When the Fat Lamp is turned on, it slowly melts and gives more light. This process takes about 2 hours. When turned off it becomes solid again. The lamp consists out of soy oil and melts by a small light-bulb that hangs directly in the oil, because soy isn’t conductive. “

Supernova suspension lamp (black)

Know that this is being posted not to make you blow any furnishing budget you might or might not have, but because it’s so wierdly pretty there’s really no choice in the matter.

“The Murano glass diffusers of Barber Osgerby’s “Supernova” test the ability of even the best glass-blowers; it is very difficult to produce a hand-blown piece of glass in this diameter with uniform color and thickness.
Each module is filled with clear Swarovski crystals to form a refracting layer. With a light source inserted above the layer of crystals, the chandelier produces soft up-light through the glass and refracted down-light through the convex crystal base.”

Pablo Tube Top table lamps

If you like the looks of this lamp, you have a chance to preorder now so that you can have it as soon as humanly possible. Awfully tempting, isn’t it? The 27″ one in white shade/clear base is particularly provocative.

“A minimalist statement in form and proportion. Tube Top combines a transparent formed acrylic base to support its elegant mesh fabric shade in tension, steering away from conventional modes of construction. Its lightweight shade appears to float freely, gently tethered by its fabric cord.”

Dolio Table Lamp

Sometimes when “mirrored” and “chrome” are adjectives used to decribe an object, cringes are seen or felt (not for me, of course, because I’m partial to that type of thing). This particular lamp are both of these things, yet remain elegant, truly embodying perhaps the best elements of “distincive” designs of the 60′s and 70′s…
