drampom_roger arquer



Lamp that uses water vapor to diffuse light by designer Roger Arquer.  The glass lamp has water at the bottom which form water vapor as it’s heated up by the heat from the light bulb.  Simple, fun idea.  I like it!

bai-shibori mini lamps @ ICFF

shibori lamp 03

“Shibori” is a method of tie dye.  This technique results in these crinkled patterns in the fabric when untied.  These bai-shibori (sik) lamps by Katayama Bunzaburo Shoten are really beautiful and fun.  Sooo light and airy.  I want one!

johnny swing lamp

This very large chandelier-like light fixutre made of glass jars really caught my eye when I passed.  Johnny Swing designed this creative light fixture along with these pig and teddy bear stuffed animals with a dollar bill print.  (I really like the pig!)  The bowl the pig is sitting in is also by him and is constructed of welded nickels!  Also on show was a lounge chair made of welded quarters.

egg lights
designer unknown…forget to see who it was by, sorry!

Saw a theme in some of the light fixtures I saw.  The one that most intrigues me the most is the final image whose pieces are more egg-shaped than sperical, but the are made of felt.  I thought they were packing peanuts at first.  Unfortunately I didnt’ get the name of who designed it.
