Words

When surfing the web, we always stumble upon beautiful things that we’d like to share with you. This time, we’ve collected our five favorite lamps. The following list includes items such as a recently invented lamp that only runs on saltwater as well as a ceramic series that challenges the way you think about the material. Have a look at our selection and enjoy!

THE SALt LAMP

The SALt Lamp by engineer Aisa Mijena is a newly constructed light object that can run on saltwater for 8 hours. Only a glass of water and two tablespoons of salt are needed to work in conjunction with the galvanized battery. Labeled as a ‘social movement’ on the product’s website, it’s a hugely innovative and useful creation where there’s no access to electricity.

INSIDE OUT LAMP

Spanish design studio Daevas created the Inside Out lamp to explore the relationship between metal and concrete. The rough surface of the raw concrete is considered as the ‘outside’. Additionally, instead of a typical lampshade, they decided on a simple metal frame structure.

ELASTIC LIGHTS

Marta Bordes created a colorful ceramic series of lamps titled ‘Elastic lights’. The geometric forms are held together with elastic cords and can be turned in any direction. By transforming the ceramics into a part of the technical mechanism, the designer challenges our traditional perception of ceramics as a static material.
