THE BEST Lamps

The Enlightenment

The Enlightenment

The Enlightenment is a light book, but not in terms of its contents because it doesn’t have any text. It’s actually a lamp shaped like a tome. Part of the proceeds from the sale go to Edukans.

Menlo Park Lamps

Dunk Lamp

Dunk Lamp

Designed by Karl Zahn, the Dunk lamp will delight and torture basketball fans. The hoop begs you to play ball with it, but the fragile fluorescent bulb – not to mention the price – tells you otherwise.

Wooden Lampshade

Wooden Lampshade

Youtuber rikkitikkiberger captured the long process of lathing that woodturner Soren Berger uses to make one of his unique lampshades. Don’t worry, he repurposes all that scrap material.

Stockpile Designs

Designer Jake Wright turns military waste into lighting fixtures and furniture. His creations take the equipment “out of their aggressive context” and highlight their form rather than their function.

Projector LED Lamp Concept

Projector LED Lamp Concept

A concept by Ukrainian designer Michael Samoriz, the Projector table lamp has 25 LEDs arranged in a square, calling to mind the huge spotlights in stadiums. This would go well with foosball tables.

Balloon Lamp

Balloon Lamp

Designed by CrousCalogero for lighting company Estiluz, the Balloon Lamp is exactly that – a balloon-shaped lamp. It casts a soft white glow and is available as a suspension lamp or a wall lamp.

Mr. Whippy Lamps

Mr. Whippy Lamps

Alex Garnett’s ice cream cone pendant lamps are the perfect place for twisty CCFL bulbs. Despite how tasty they look, we don’t encourage licking the bulbs or crunching down on the earthenware cones.

Gummy Bear Lamps

Gummy Bear Lamps

While you might be tempted, you won’t be able to eat this giant gummy bear – that’s because it’s a nightlight, and despite your best efforts, it’s not edible. Just push its squishy bear belly for light.

Wrecking Ball Lamp

Wrecking Ball Lamp

While you could have a lamp inspired by a crane, you could also be much more literal with Studio Job’s bronze wrecking ball lamp, which replaces the ball with a bulb. Matching crane here.

The Crane Lamp

The Crane Lamp

Measuring 8’6″ tall by 10′ long, this dramatic counterbalanced wooden LED lighting fixture by Matt Downer Designs is the only thing you need to fill an entire room (besides some place to sit.)

Cereal Bowl Lamp

Cereal Bowl Lamp

All you need to do to illuminate this Cereal Bowl Lamp from ideaka is to touch the metal spoon. It’s still a concept, but it might be fun to immortalize a favorite childhood (or adult) breakfast memory.

Nuke Lamp

Nuke Lamp

One of the most eye-catching – and controversial – designs for a lamp we’ve ever seen. Designed by Luca Veneri using fluid dynamic simulation to emulate the shape of a mushroom cloud.

A4 Paper Ream Lamp

A4 Paper Ream Lamp

It seems like such a simple concept, but we love the ambient glow that plusminuszero’s A4 lamp emits, while masquerading as a 500-sheet ream of paper. We wish they made one in tabloid size too.

Unleash your inner Wile E. Coyote with this basic, but nonetheless amusing cloth lampshade from Meninos. Hanging light bulb and Road Runner not included. Also, doesn’t actually weigh 10 tons.

Shark Lamp

Shark Lamp

We can’t get the shark attack theme from Jaws out of our minds when we look at designer Aleksandr Mukomelov’s shark fin lamp. And just when we thought it was safe to go back in the living room.

Recycled Paper Lampshades

Recycled Paper Lampshades

We are loving the shapes and light that’s bundled within these pristinely cut paper lampshades, handcrafted from repurposed comic books, novels and fairy tales from Rotterdam’s Ginkgo Studio.

Splash photographic images across your walls with this tiny, focused aluminum spotlight, powered by a bright LED lamp. Custom slides cost about $5 each. European plug, though, so you’ll need an adapter.

Book Rest Lamp

Book Rest Lamp

For those times when you put down the e-Reader and pick up a real book, this softly-glowing glass lamp is the perfect place to rest your book between chapters. Just don’t try to set your Kindle on top.

Hollywood Studio Lamp
