If you are looking for a really cool lamp for your desk, then the Chain Lamp designed by Iliara Marelli for Nemo Italianaluce might be what you’re looking for. Made from case aluminum and lit by 4 bright white (1-watt) LEDs, its articulating body folds flat to form an accent light when you’re not using it for task illumination.
Beautiful and with an imposing façade, the Cat Mountain Residence, designed by Cornerstone Architects in Austin, Texas, is quite unique, thanks to the special blend of neat contemporary notes in dialogue with the charming antique decorations.
Hiding beneath its opalescent polycarbonate skin are a number of bright white LEDs which provide clean, green illumination. You can find the Abyss Lamp from Y Lighting for about $500.
The guys at Transparent House have a great idea for what to do with all of those translucent old cassette tapes clacking together under the bucket seats of your Impala: glue them together and fashion them into a lamp.
