Unique Lamps That Will Light Up Your Imagination
The perfect lighting can make a huge difference in any room. The lamps featured in this post range from the classic to the whimsical, from industrial to minimalist and from those meant for the study to those for the nightstand. For example, a very unique self-balancing dragonfly lamp can be balanced on a single point without relying on magnetic force.
An Edison bulb design makes for a hip edition to any table.
Heng Balance Lamp
The Heng Balance is one of the more original lamps we’ve seen in recent years. “Heng” means “balance” in Chinese, and the overall design was inspired by traditional round fans and window frames. A series of lights run along the inside rim, and unlike most lamps, there’s actually no switch on the Heng Balance. Instead, the unit uses two balls with embedded magnets, which attract one another and activate the lamp once close enough.
Self-balancing Dragonfly Lamp
Dragonfly lamps are more interesting than balanced lights. Without relying on magnetic force, the self-balancing dragonfly lamp can maintain balance on a single point. The brightness of the light can be used for reading.
The Brewmeister Industrial Table Lamp includes an upcycled beer bottle as its light source.
Lumio is a versatile lamp that’s capable of dishing out a little light at home and on the go. The lamp is designed to resemble a hardcover book, and as such, the interior “pages” fan out a full 360 degrees. Magnets along the exterior also allow you to mount Lumio onto virtually any magnetic surface.
