Sompex Beanbag Lamps – Soon To Be A Staple Of College Dorms Across The Country

Sompex Beanbag Lamps – Soon To Be A Staple Of College Dorms Across The Country

The beanbag chair might not be the most aesthetically pleasing piece of furniture, but damn if they aren’t comfortable. And while this beanbag lamp probably won’t be popular with interior design types, I’m sure it will find a home in college dorms or homes with children, which arguably aren’t that different.

The base of the lamp is made from DuPont fabric filled with fire dried quartz sand with an aluminum reflector on top focusing the light from the bulb. Based on a photo from Design Milk taken at a recent trade show in Frankfurt, a removable shade accessory might be available as well. I actually really like the idea and the execution since it makes the light easier to point and focus, not to mention the lamp is very difficult to break. At almost $70 (£43.95) it is a bit expensive, but if they make a battery-powered version with LED lights I’d buy one yesterday.
