Fruits Table Lamp

July 25th, 2012

I used to be really into product design, but lately I find most of it quite boring. From time to time something nice pops up when I’m surfing around like this “Fruits Table Lamp” by S&O Design.

Surface Tension Lamp

April 17th, 2012

It’s again that time of the year when all the product designers show their latest and greatest work at the Milan furniture fair. A few hours ago I was still thinking how bored I am with product design lately …
But Front came to the rescue with this fantastic project: “Surface Tension Lamp”.

A bubble is brief, and bursts at your touch. But while it lasts, it catches the light and reflects the room like a multi-coloured temporary structure. We wanted to create a constantly changing lamp that combines the most ephemeral of lampshades with an LED light source that will last for 50000 hours. In the time it takes the LED to burn out, the lamp will have had 3 million different globe shades.

Just watch the video!

Here’s the same lamp, but they added smoke to the soap bubble …

Collection of Light

December 13th, 2011

The “Collection of Light” by humans since 1982 is probably the best lamp I’ve seen in a while. It is simply a collection of LEDs which together constitute a lamp in itself. They wanted to create an aura of a real collection (similar to a collection of insects) and expose each illuminant as a worthy industrial product. The LEDs are all labeled (with name, size and colour temperature) and arranged in a specific order to accomplish harmonic light.
I want one!

Daylight Entrance

May 10th, 2010

The Daylight Entrance by Daniel Rybakken is all about the illusion of daylight. It’s an light installation in the entrance and staircase of an office building. Both don’t have any natural light, but these panels give you the positive sensation of sunlight. The back of the panels were hollowed by CNC-milling and then backlit with a lot of LED’s.
You might also want to have a look at his “Subconscious Effect of Daylight” sidetable.
