Bub Table Lamp

This isn’t the first or last bulb-stuck-in-the-side-of-a-lampshade you’ll see, but it is perhaps the most alluring. A bulb pierces the side of the hand blown glass shade, at just the right height for a friendly, floating apparition. The olive tint gives the lamp an extra amicable look that’s sure to get along with other pieces in your collection.

‘Pion’ Lamps

A lamp by Bertjan Pot, you say? And it’s not too terribly expensive? Well, sign me up. The ‘Pion’ lamps for Wrong.London and Hay have a shape that references a pawn chess piece (‘Pion’ is the Dutch word for “pawn”). Crafted from a stitched composite ‘Nomex’ paper, the lamp gives off a soft, diffused glow that’s sure to set the right ambience in any room. The shape is supported by a steel frame and carbon-fibre rod, and, don’t worry, the shade is both UV-stable and flame resistant. Suitable for floor or table use.

Boom Table Light

Need a little light? The Boom task light by Tom Dixon is composed of a series of cylinders and tubes arranged in a semi-industrial sculptural stack. Inspired by traditional draftsman’s and machinist’s lamps, the pivoting arm and head will focus light right where you need it, which may just help you get your work done a tiny bit faster. If not that, then at the very least you won’t have headaches from eye strain.

Trash Me Lamp

Do you have any egg cartons lying around? Maybe you could make a lamp… or, at least appreciate that this small lamp is made from paper pulp comprising of four egg cartons, water, and aluminum screws. Designed by Victor Vetterlein, the lamp is intended to reflect the transient nature of the material used. At the end of its life the lamp can be recycled.

Alphacrete, Concrete Neon Light

Get your message across with some heavy lettering- though you’d be smart to keep it short and sweet (each letter sets you back $200). Maybe just one, short word? Seletti’s Alphacrete Lamps have neon glass surrounded by concrete for a sharp contrast. Kind of fun, right? They can go indoors or outside and can be hung on the wall or kept on a tabletop or shelf. Keep in mind to add the right transformer to your order for the amount of letters you buy.

Luci Color Lamp

What’s this deflated solar thingy anyways? It’s the Luci Color Lamp, and it could be a fun addition to your household, especially if you’ve got kiddos running around.

Concrete Brick Lamp by Hyfen

This LED lamp has no switch, shade, or wires, which begs the question, how on earth do you turn it on? Well, it’s more of an intuitive system, so, you simply raise it in an upright position to turn it on. Lay it facedown to turn it off. It’s completely portable- remember, no wires- so, pick it up and take it with you from room to room to get a warm, white light illuminating your immediate vicinity.

Conic Table Lamp

Can you draw? Because this lamp needs to be the star of a short comic- its little shade looks just like a hat. Simple geometric elements with the slight skew of asymmetry give the Conic Lamp its personality. Set it up on your desk or a side table for a directional reading light (and pretend it’s your non-judgmental friend, always there with a bright outlook when you need it most).

Ile w153 Table Lamp by Wastberg

In love with a lamp… that should be a song title, shouldn’t it? The Ile w153 Table Lamp, designed by Inga Sempe, aims straight for our hearts, as it can be clamped to a ledge or tabletop, mounted on the wall, or set upon a flat surface. The shade moves smoothly, as it has a magnetic connection to the base. Now, the question is, just which color would be perfect for your bedside, reading chair, or desk? (Two grey/brown lamps are calling my name, I think.)
