Peg Lamp Is Sure To Put An End To Annoying Lightbulb Changing Jokes

Peg Lamp (Images courtesy Steffi Min)
By Andrew Liszewski

Do you know how many people it takes to change the lightbulb on the Peg lamp designed by Steffi Min? Just one dammit! It’s shaped and works like an over-sized clothespin so there’s no screwing or anything like that involved. You just squeeze it open, stick a bulb inside the clampy bit and then close it. The bulb’s metal base will then touch the necessary electrical contacts inside making it light up. It also seems impossible to break the bulb when installing/uninstalling it because the usual forces from screwing are completely gone. And since it’s part of Steffi Min’s industrial design senior thesis, it’s also impossible to buy since I’m sure this version is just a one-off.

    new, related question . . . how many videos does it take to put a stop to totally un-necessary, highly annoying, constantly distracting “musical accompaniment?” At some point in our electronic history, silence became a mistake that needs correction, even if the corrective is painful, stupid and feckless.

    In this case, the experience of encountering a truly brilliant, humorous, practical and desirable insight is spoiled for no good reason.

    There is someone out there who really wants to try hanging their wet clothes on a clothes line with this thing. I’m not saying it’s me, but I wouldn’t mind being there to see the sparks fly from this nifty creation.
