The worlds strangest lamps

June 4, 2009

A little bit of light hearted oddness (pun intended).
Oddee has compiled a shortlist of the worlds most weird and wonderful lamp designs.

No matter how you look at some of these, its hard to imagine what the designers were thinking or indeed, if they were thinking at all! makes for a good few mins of procrastination though

The Lightswitch of the future?

December 1, 2008

Flipping on a light switch usually doesn’t require much in the way of cranial fortitude, but mount three or four of the things in a row and it’s always a gamble to flick the right one.

Japanese graphic designer Mac Funamizu feels your shame, imagining a conceptual wall-mounted touchpad to end the confusion and inadvertent light shows. With his invention you’d simply drag your finger toward the light you want to turn on, do it again to turn it off, or make a circular sweep to illuminate the whole room.

Not a bad idea I say – there are some more pics here.
