Isn’t this neat We think so and love this extremely unique concept. You’ll really surprise everyone with this beautifully innocent book. The book of lights pop up protagonist emits a tabletop warming glow.
Designed by Jethro Macey the Coin Lamp requires you to insert a coin before it lights up. It will only light up whenever you insert coins inside, and the lamp itself has been specially set to a pre-determined time by an internal mechanism.
One of the lighting trends for 2016 is Lamps Plus’ “upgraded industrial”. According to a company press release, “the warehouse-inspired-movement-cum-mainstream design staple is seeing a bit of refinement.” Look for modern industrial lighting featuring rich tones and alternative metals.
The lamp uses LED technology which allows low electricity consumption. Electricity is transferred between the lamp and its base via magnetic induction with no visible connection. According to the designer, “the ceramic material plays an important role by transporting the user back to a time of candle-holders and hand-lamps by means of its appearance and feel and primarily by the way it is held.”
The human body is meant to move, and if sitting in an office eight hours a day is a must, then desks must be reinvented: “We believe your work desk is more than a tool we see it as a work companion which cares about your health and enables your healthy lifestyle”, added the designers. Have a look at the video below to better understand how it works:
Because of the way the lamp is built, the light also illuminates the glass beam, creating that delightful X-Files effect.
The lamp looks very simple except for the tasteless, hanging anthropomorphic figure. Either the designers were fresh out of ideas or they are into black humor.
The apartment is in standby mode for most needs the inhabitants may have when they return home. The lighting in all areas is evenly, working circles are placed on the ceiling and spots near the walls. Heating and ventilation are also active. The curtains are raised and the external environment is also part of the atmosphere.
