The Drop lamp from Andromeda

Posted in Lamps by Conner Flynn on February 23rd, 2008

The Drop lamp from Andromeda
This lamp from Andromeda has an awesome look. Andromeda is the company name, but this one could have just as easily come from the Andromeda galaxy. The Drop Lamp combines Murano glass mastery and engineering in a suspended lamp that looks like a droplet of water frozen in space. It has an organic, futuristic look that is simple and elegant.

The natural characteristics of Murano glass means no two lamps are identical. They are all unique works of art. Well, as they point out, if you drop them the result is always the same, a million shards of broken glass and a huge chunk of money out of your pocket to replace it. These have a really cool design and they actually do look like they are about to drop, which might make you a bit nervous.

At last: Pac-Man interior lighting

The mighty Pac-Wall
I haven’t seen anything this cool since the Pac-Man Christmas tree in Madrid. Unlike the Pac-Man tree, this Pac-Man-inspired modular block lighting system can stay up year round.

This wall mural is on display at the Maison & Objet 2008 show in Paris. One thing you’ll notice right away is how outnumbered our yellow friend is. That’s a ton of ghosts for an 8-bit hero to gobble. They could have put some fruit in or more dots. The second thing you’ll notice is that the woman’s rear has been blocked from our view. Oh well, you can’t have it all right? We’ll always have Paris my secretive Pac-Man loving geek goddess.

Star Wars LED Lightsaber lamps

Posted in Lamps,LED,Star Wars by Conner Flynn on January 17th, 2008

The lamp of a JediThese Star Wars lightsaber lamps are just the thing for geek lighting in your humble abode. Plus, I would think they would be easy to grab should a Sith Lord or agent of the Empire suddenly attack you in the middle of the night.

They won’t light up a whole room or anything, running on just AAA batteries, but they will emit a subtle LED glow. Just enough for visitors to sense a minor tremor of coolness in the force. They come in your choice of Jedi green and Sith red.

Mario USB mushroom lamp from Brando

Mario USB mushroom lamp

It doesn’t get much better designwise, then a mushroom lamp that is clearly inspired by the Mario games from Nintendo. It’s a classic that’s instantly recognizable and nostalgic.

Now you finally have that last elusive piece of the puzzle and can decorate your room to look just like the Mushroom Kingdom. I like the green 1up mushroom because it reminds me of countless extra lives. They’re cute, colorful and cheap at $13. They are sure to win you the Princess, or at the very least your friend Luigi will want to hang out more.

Amplify your lighting with the tube lamp

Posted in Lamps by Conner Flynn on December 10th, 2007

Tube lamp

I love design. I also love vacuum tubes. This Tube Lamp is an homage to high end audio amplifiers, with some funky details. What you get is a series of 9 tubes with 25 Watt lamps inside. The glass tubes glow when switched on, so you can pretend you are a mad scientist.

They really went the whole nine yards, encasing the tubes in a black bakelite box and giving the device a toggle switch, mirror top and dimmer knob. Anyone who has an appreciation for old tube technology will love this. Imagine what a great conversation piece this would be. Especially if you are the kind of evil genius who connects about ten of these things together.

Intelligent lantern is a smart camping accessory

Intelligent lantern

You don’t generally see improvements in camping lanterns. For the most part they’ve remained the same for years, but this one has a pretty clever design that’s sure to make camping more enjoyable. How about a light powerful enough to be seen from a mile away? The lights are mounted on trays so you can swivel them where you need to see.

There’s also a jack and speakers so you can plug in your mp3 player and have some fireside tunes. If that’s not enough to get you in the great outdoors, there’s also a digital clock and an AM/FM radio with local weatherbands. Having these features all in one unit will lighten your load a bit. Uses 6 C batteries. AC and DC adaptors included.

Heart Lamp warms more than lights

Posted in Concepts,Lamps by Reuben Drake on December 1st, 2007

Heart Lamp design made to warmThis Heart Lamp design by Lígia Carteiro is not the heart shape we would normally expect to see, but uses a more realistic and a little less appealing likeness of the human heart. According to Carteiro, the lamp was inspired by the proverb “cold hand, warm heart” and the lamp is warm to the touch due to a 15w light bulb. It doesn’t look like it would do a great job as a lamp, however. By looking at it I think the concept would do just as well as a mouse, or a maybe a USB powered lamp?

Jackpot lamp brings Vegas to you

Jackpot lamp brings Vegas to you

Maybe not all of Vegas. At least you can experience the thrill of feeding money to a one-armed bandit and get quality lighting at the same time. If you are the type that has alot of friends come over, you’ll be rich in no time as they feed your lamp nickels. It really pays out too. Hopefully to you, after your friends go home. If they get too mad, you can always comp them a room or something.

Have your very own Vegas experience for $79.98. Or just practice for that next big trip to Vegas. It also features a button for demo and normal lamp mode.

Space Explorer lighting for the final frontier

Posted in Home,Lamps,Sci-Fi by Conner Flynn on November 20th, 2007

Space Explorer overhead lighting

It’s getting easier to decorate that Sci-Fi or space themed decor these days. This Space Explorer lamp is for anyone who has ever dreamed of being an astronaut, young or old. I want one yesterday.

It’s got alot of detail with thruster lights and the required floating astronauts, along with what appears to be a space station. This is the perfect companion piece to that Starship Enterprise that you have hanging on your ceiling already. It will cost you $185. Money is no object when making your room a Sci-Fi Space scene. It’s basically one small step for astronauts and one giant leap for cool overhead lighting.

Book Of Lights: pop up book is a lamp

Posted in Lamps by Conner Flynn on November 7th, 2007

pop up book is a lamp

What kid doesn’t remember Pop-Up books? I just read one the other day despite my age. Regular books just don’t jump out at you or do anything, except try to teach you things. Who needs all that fancy book learnin’ anyway?

Well, Pop-Up books just grew up with the Book Of Lights. It’s a large, linen-bound hardcover book that opens up to reveal a pop-up, functioning lamp inside. You can get the book in red or grey. The lamp itself comes in 2 varieties, traditional lampshade or Parisian streetlamp design.

Dr. Light alarm clock has iPod envy

Dr. Light Alarm Clock has iPod EnvyIf the iPod were a supermodel, it might look something like this. Tall, skinny and beautiful. It’s as if an iPod were caught in a black hole and stretched. Words can’t really describe just how pleasing the above products are to my eye.

Beautiful as they are, Dr. Lite is simply an Alarm clock. No more, no less. An alarm clock with 2 distinct features: It struts around like an iPod snob and it has several rows of LEDs that light up to reflect the time of day, simulating dawn and dusk.

Desk lamps get tired too

Artistic resign of an anglepoise lamp made out of rubber by Tiago de Oliveira Martins de Fonseca entitled No Angle No PoiseThis alternative design of an anglepoise lamp is a real working model displayed recently at the Aram Gallery in London entitled No Angle No Poise. It’s made out of rubber instead of the usually stiff metal parts and according to designer Tiago de Oliveira Martins de Fonseca, he was giving the lamp a little respite from its normally rigid lifestyle.

“I thought I could give it a rest from its stiff vigilance,” de Oliveira Martins de Fonseca said in an email. “Most anglepoise lamps end up in the same position for months. We barely touch them.”

Summertime jellyfish

Medusa pool light is a solar lamp that floats in swimming poolsOf course it’s the fall and the days of summer are fast falling behind us but before you pack up the pool equipment there is one final thingy we want to show you. This is the Medusa pool light, a solar autonomous floating lamp for swimming pools. Toss one of these organic looking devices into your backyard pool and it will light up the water for your nighttime swims. The tentacles look to be made from fiber optics and gently twist and turn around in the current. The great thing about it is that since it gets all of its energy from the sun you never need to charge it up.

USB desk lamp changes colors the faster you type

Posted in Lamps,Office Gadgets,USB by Reuben Drake on August 20th, 2007

USB desk lamp changes colors the faster your typeAlthough it makes me shudder every time, when I see this lamp I envision a multitude of these little things mounted on the walls of programmer cube farms so managers can make sure the keyboards are always going. Due to this I think this lamp is just a horrible invention. Of course, I’m sure it can be used for purposes of good as well, and with a little therapy I can probably get there.
