It’s the lawsuit-avoiding tech of unlicensed merchandise. Clearly reminiscent of the mushrooms floating around in Nintendo’s famous Mario Bros. This lamp is available at $12 from here.
In nurseries and kid’s rooms, remember night lighting: Think about the lighting for when children sleep when planning lighting requirements. Night lights can help small children from being scared, but can also help parents navigate through dark rooms.
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.”
Lighting in your home is one of those items that you don’t always notice when it has a good presence and feeling when you’re in the space. Although, when the lighting is poor and you are trying to perform a task, or you feel the opposite of how you would like to feel in the space, you notice it immediately.
It seems even with the modern LED light technology, designers just cannot let go of old designs. Good Night Eileen by Christine Birkhoven is based on the archaic hand-lamp, which was used for illumination moving from one room to another at home in the dark.
Once chosen you can begin to choose lighting options. Each room in your home should have a mood you want to set, as well as a function you want your lighting to serve.
The $139 price tag is rather steep IMHO, but then again good ideas are hard to come by, and when they do, they are rarely cheap.
If you always wanted something really cool and unique then the Ociu Light from Zava that has a diameter of 6 feet ( 185 cm ) certainly makes a statement. The suspension is fully realized in opal methacrylate, 8 mm thickness, diameter of 185 cm and a width of 90 cm.
Another trait that adds into the mystery of this unique light is the way it controls the illumination. It is the tap that doubles up as the dimmer in this case. Just turn it around and you can control the effects. Must say this will indeed be a unique addition in your home decor.
When you look at this lamp design it seems as if a strange creature is sliding down a rope. Gently and almost weightlessly, radiating a warm and graceful light. Alien. Available in two different sizes and four variations, as pendant, table, floor lights, and outdoor. The lights are being manufactured and sold by Next, and are be available to purchase since September 2008, designed by Büro für Form.
For those of us who can’t see in the dark and have a tendency to stumble around in the gloom, we (along with our stubbed toes) would be grateful to see this nicely-designed luminaire actually finding its way to the marketplace.
It may be ugly, but you can’t deny that a wiener dog with an illuminated torso is pretty damn funny. You can have it from here for $50.
OCIU is available in various colors: black and white entirely with internal processing leaf gold or silver.The word “ociu” means “pay attention,” as if you could ignore something this big. Finally you have to agree that the Ociu Light from Zava stunning but nevertheless linear and very elegant.
The kits include everything you need to make these cool designer fixtures except for the bulbs themselves. A special bulb marking template, adhesive and “snaps” let you arrange your bulbs into a variety of cool shapes and sizes, including desk lamps and hanging fixtures.
