Why settle for an old run of the mill lamp when you can actually choose something more innovative and striking? Here are 9 such lamps that would defy the norms of traditional lamps and give that much needed chutzpah to your home. From their ‘one of a kind’ designs to their unique lighting abilities, these lamps are definitely for the home of the future.
This innovative lamp owes its design to JethroMacey, and actually asks you to insert a coin into it slot before it lights up. The lamp also comes with an internal mechanism that has a pre-determined time interval after which it switches off the lamp automatically.
This mind boggling lamp would look as if a miniature thunder cloud had floated into your home. It not only mimics the effects of lightning striking inside the cloud, but also mimics the deep rumbling sound caused by thunder.
This unique lighting concept by Billy May utilizes perfect disguises to hide the source of the lights. It features installations on the wall that are carefully hidden from view so that one can only see the light coming from them and not the fixtures. The striking end result is a look that resembles a space time hole that streams light through holes in the wall.
Lumio Book Lamp
A wonderful concept, the Lumio Light would never look like a standard light at first glance. The reason? It looks just like a book instead. However, open the book and each page of it is actually a leaf of light. This means, you can open the book completely to reveal a ‘hand fan’ like arrangement of lights.
Desktop Grenade Lamp
Perfect for army officers and enthusiasts, the Desktop Grenade Lamp features a lamp shade that sits atop a large sized grenade. The only way to switch on the light would be to pull the grenade’s pin. Dare to do it?
Light Drop Lamp
A rather creative design by Rafael Morgan, the ‘Light Drop’ lamp looks like a bright water droplet that is frozen midway from the tap. The water droplet acts as the lighting source while the tap to which it is attached acts as the control. You can switch on or switch off the light by turning the tap. Another highlight of this lamp is how turning the tap can also allow you to make the lights dim or brighter.
This great looking lamp would be the perfect addition to your kid’s bedroom. It features a white balloon that looks like it is floating in midair. The balloon has an inbuilt LED light that shines through the transparent outer cover brightly. The result is that of a magical balloon which emits light while floating in the air.
What better way to wake up in the morning than to a beautiful flower hovering above your head? That’s Lull for you. The Lull Lamp by GiForm 2007 is an award winning design that features an upside down flower that hangs right above your bed. At night, the lamp aka flower remains closed, emitting very faint light. In the morning though, it opens up just like a flower would do, gradually increasing the intensity of the light in order to wake you up comfortably.
Chandelier made of Old Bike Parts
You never need to worry about throwing away your old bike again. This one of a kind chandelier made of old bike parts would be a great inspiration for you to transform your bike into a creative light source as well. The design features all the intricate parts of the bike connected together to form a giant sphere into which a colored LED light is inserted. In addition to giving a magical glow, the lamp produces some very striking shadows on the walls.
The standard lamps of yesterday have nearly vanished. What we see today and innovative lamps that take creativity and functionality to new heights. From replicating the light and sounds of a thunder cloud to floating in midair, these lamps will look great in your modernistic home.
