Solarise – Watch the sun rise on your lamp


Lauren Moriarty, lighting designer extraordinaire, will be releasing her Solarise lamp next month at the London Design Festival.

The Solarise lamp has a shade has a thermochromic layer of printed skyline that reacts to heat. So once you turn the lamp on, the shade gradually lets more light through, giving the effect of the sun rising.

I would imagine this could be a great way to wake up each morning. Just plug the lamp in to a timer that turns the lamp on at a certain time each day so you are lovingly awaken by the light instead of that blaring alarm.

Electric Flower – The Growing Bulb


Felix de Pass has skipped the traditional idea of having a lamp hold the lightbulb and just gone straight to connecting the light to the outlet (via a moldable power cable) with his PlugLight fixture.

What’s even cooler here is that the light filament in the bulb is a flower. So what you end up with is a little electric flower growing out of your wall.

How sweet.

Mini BoomBox – Jam it down the street with your iPod…boombox style

Mini BoomBox

So while iPods certainly are a popular gadget…they really lack in certain areas. Namely, they don’t look like a boombox. Basically you don’t have a legitimate piece of audio equipment unless it looks like a boombox straight out of the early ’90s.

Thankfully, we finally have a solution.

By the end of September you’ll be able to purchase a mini cardboard boombox with real, working speakers, that you can drop your iPod into and rock it down your street.



Sofie Refer’s Mega Bulb

Sofie Refer’s Mega Bulb This could be one of the sleekest looking light fixtures I’ve every seen. The entire design of it is such a basic idea that it’s amazing no one has thought of it before.

Basically it’s a bulb within a bulb with the outer “casing” consisting of a simple layer of glass that surrounds your clear glass light bulb. The final product is crisp light in an artistic form.

Unfortunately you need to be able to read German and have $170 if you’d like to purchase this.
