Brick Lamp Doesn’t Have An On/Off Switch


The Brick Lamp is an intriguing looking lamp with a minimalist design whose main “feature” appears to be the absence of a power switch. Instead, you turn the bright LED light on by placing it on its side, and turn it off by placing it face down. Integrated batteries provide up to 5 hours of use on a charge, while a charging cable lets you run the lights indefinitely. It’s great as a desk lamp, night light, or any other type of light that has to be directed at an angle down onto a surface, or straight up at the ceiling. One version is “made from a special mix of cement and fine grain sands. It is cast in a high quality rubber mold to create a super fine and smooth finish”, while the other is made from “an authentic single piece of wood lumber, coated with an all natural eco-friendly clear stain to give it an elegant finish.” They’re meant to look good, while providing a modicum of function, and you can get the concrete version for a $120 pledge, while the wood version will set you back $145.

The ‘Get Ready For The Launch’ Desk Lamp Is Perfect For The Space Geek In Your Life


There isn’t a whole lot to say about this desk lamp from the Arnout Meijer Studio in the Netherlands, other than to observe that it looks very cool and would make a great addition to anyone who considers space exploration an essential human endeavour. Measuring 60cm high (2ft.), the lamp stands atop a mat white base, maintaining a neutral look overall. One has to inquire about the price, which leads us to believe it’s probably more than we can afford. But there are plenty of people with more disposable income than us, so feel free to follow the link at the bottom of this article if you fancy the ‘Get Ready For The Launch’ desk lamp.

3D Printed Lacelamps Project Intricate Patterns On Your Walls


Artists Linlin and Pierre-Yves Jacques have created a collection of lamps that integrate a 3D-printed element reminiscent of lace. When the lights are turned on, they project a cool web of patterns all over your room, while the lamps themselves do look kind of neat. We’re not sure how much they cost or whether they’re even for sale, but we can’t imagine why they wouldn’t be. There are two types, filed under “Sky” and “Land”, meaning one hangs from the ceiling while the other stands on a surface.

Hit the jump for a bunch of pics.

Desktop Tornado Machine Sure Beats Lava Lamps


There’s a number of things you can put on your desk to brighten up a crappy afternoon at the office. The Desktop Tornado machine is one such option, and we frankly like it more than may of the other alternatives out there.

A built-in atomizer turns water into a cloud of mist while a fan in the base creates the updraft. Six circulation manifolds generate convergence and rotation, creating a rapidly spinning vertical column of air—the hallmark of any tornado. Users can change the direction of the air circulating manifolds, adjust the speed of the updraft fan, or adjust the intake fan on top to change the funnel speed of the tornado.

Using the device is simple and assembly takes around 10 minutes. Unfortunately, you’re going to have to pay a whole lot more than you would for a lava lamp: $300. That’s a lot of dollars just to watch air swirling around on your desk.

Super Mario Lamp Is Boss


If this isn’t the greatest looking lamp you’ve ever seen… then we need to have a talk with you: you probably get out more than we do! Greatest or not, the Super Mario lamp pictured above is definitely creative, and would have been bound to make any gaming aficionados reach for their wallets. It was being sold for $180 on Etsy, but appears to have found an owner already. It’s sad, but maybe with a b it of prodding, the guy could make another one.

Life-Sized Mannequin Lamps Will Scare the Crap Out Of You

Mannequin Lamps

These life-sized mannequin lamps are not for the faint-hearted. These lamps, called ‘Embarakiya’, are part of a series by Al-Hamad Design. If their goal was to scare the crap out of people, then they succeeded immensely because these lamps are beyond creepy. Each mannequin has a lamp in place of their head.

Imagine these mannequin lamps lighting your living room and passing by one in the dead of night on your way to the bathroom… You’d probably scream loud enough to wake the entire neighborhood!

You can check out more freaky, headless mannequin lamps after the break.

Twister Tube Is A Modern Lava Lamp… Without The Lava

There’s a bunch of things you could get to decorate your desk, at least in terms of lighting. The Lava Lamp was a staple of many a dorm room, throughout the 60’s and even the 90’s when it made a little comeback. But we’re pretty sure that fad is dead. And while we’re not certain the Twister Tube will ever take its place, it’s doing a mighty good effort of it.

The Twister Tube stands 15″ tall with a polished glass tube, sleek black base, and water resistant lid. When filled with distilled water and our special Twister Solution™, and powered on, a motor silently springs to life and begins turning the water. In seconds, a miniature tornado forms, drops down, and finally hovers just above the custom Twister Bar™. Although this is more commonly referred to as a water vortex, it looks and acts eerily like a real tornado including the “cloud deck”.

It’s $60 and comes in a variety of colours.
