Designer Richard Clarkson is known for a lot artsy stuff, but nothing from his portfolio stood out more than his cloud sculptures. You see, Richard here is kind of like X-Men’s Storm. He can whip up quite a storm. Granted, he won’t do damages like Ororo Munroe does when she is really pissed. His is a different kind of storm, or should we say, his work of art has an element of a storm. Clarkson’s much talked about cloud has seen it being transformed into a ceiling light, a super cool Bluetooth speaker and now, it has come to your desktop as a desk lamp.

Everyone like banana for different reasons. Some love it because it is loaded with vitamins, some love it as a fruit and then there are some who love it because it brightens their day. Ok. Maybe regular, organic bananas can’t light up the dark (if it can, don’t ever eat it!), but the Seletti Banana Lamp designed by Belgium-based Studio Job certainly can. At a glance, it looks like a real banana, half-peeled and coated in luxurious gold, but it is really a desk lamp. Continue reading Seletti Banana Lamp Gives Us Another Reason To Love Bananas
What is inflatable, produces light and can be used at home or camping? Ok, I will save you the hassle of guessing. It is called Blow Me Up. No. No. Don’t get it wrong. There’s nothing NSFW about Blow Me Up. It is actually a light and an inflatable one. Wait, what? Inflatable light? Yes. Inflatable light. Now, the concept of inflatable light isn’t all that new. There is at least one we knew (and it is awesome, btw), but the Blow Me Up by German industrial designer Ingo Maurer is little more playful in a way. It is a 6-foot long LED-powered lamp but it comes packed, rolled inside a can in its deflated state. Upon unboxing, user will have to inflate manually by hand to get it to its intended, hence the name Blow Me Up. Although, technically, it doesn’t actually inflate using your mouth. Continue reading Ingo Maurer’s Inflatable Light Is Just About As Unique As A Light Can Gets

I am sure you have seen lava lamps and have, at one point in time, been mesmerized by the blobs floating up and down the liquid-filled lamp. Lava lamp was invented in 1963 and the ‘lava’ isn’t really the lava that spits out of volcanoes (you do know that, right?). It is actually colored wax and the floating effect is due to the heat from the light source below it that changes the wax density. There is some science behind it, but not as much as the Ferrofluid Lamp, which we thought could potentially usurp it as the ‘lava lamp’ of the 21st century. As the product name implies, the blob (or blobs) inside the clear liquid is, well, ferrofluid and thus, the Ferrofluid lamp is a motion lamp with rising/falling blobs and it is also a novelty science (or art if you will) product that allows you to use magnets to change the form of the blobs and dictate their movement inside the purposed built bottle. Think of Ferrofluid Lamp as an interactive lava lamp of sort. Continue reading Ferrofluid Lamp is the Lava Lamp of the 21st Century. It is Interactive.
Lamp is one of those things that the world’s isn’t lacking, but to find one that suits your style will be a bit of challenge. That, of course, applies only if you are particularly anal about the details that goes into your home. In case you subscribed to the aforementioned category, appreciate graffiti art, or art in general and wants an accent light with character, then you might want to check out the Slim Lamps. The product name doesn’t do justice to what the lamp. It is a piece of art, but not those art that requires you to crack your brain to decipher what it is all about – it is a straightforward, good’ol printed art that looks good both lighted and not lighted.

these days we hang the word ‘cloud’ right next to our mouth, but how about putting one (the cloud) in your living, like literally? but this cloud, The Cloud Lamp by Richard Clarkson, is not a place or a natural phenomena (that would ridiculous, wouldn’t it?), but a piece of light and sound art that promised you a lightning experience, or if you prefer, offers you audio reproduction with visual feedback. there is no firm category for The Cloud Lamp by Richard Clarkson, because it is both a nightlight and a nightspeaker, which would qualifies it as a hybrid in that sense. it is described in the creator’s own words “an Arduino-controlled, motion triggered lightning and thunder performance”, and on the other hand, “it is a music-activated visualizer and suspended speaker unit.” this is your very own cumulonimbus cloud which you can physically see and feel, and has electrical circuity in place of mass of vapor which is often out of reach unless you reach for the Everest. and did we mention that it is a whole lot safer then what Mother nature has to offer?
