LULL is a lamp that opens and closes like a flower. In the evening the lamp gives a warm glow, to give a feeling of safety while it slowly turns itself off.
Once in a while you will come across a gadget that is so wacky, not sharing it with the rest would be tantamount to sinning. The Desktop Grenade Lamp that is a lovely combination of two ideas pulling the grenade’s pin will turn the lamp on instead of resulting in a deadly explosion.
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.
While some lights are designed to help you read a book, this Butterfly Lamp by Japanese design studio Vinta takes a page from a book’s shape instead. It easily allows you to adjust how much light is in an area in a fluid way by opening or closing its two “wings.”
