Futuristic Retro DIY Light – In Motion

Can a lamp be both retro and futuristic? Well the Coachella lamp looks like a vintage time machine of sorts.  It is made up of an Argon discharge lamp and LED lights encased within an acrylic case, and there are four Nixie tubes on each corner of the box that light up. All of this is controlled via an Arduino microcontroller. The photos do this one of kind lamp no justice – check out the video to see this light in motion (via Hack n Mod).

Laluna – Fiber Optic Pendant Light

The Laluna light is made up of strands of fiber optics. This delicate looking light piece was designed by Steffen Bauer for Crescent Lighting. It uses halogen or LED lights, which are installed into the ceiling or another room. The lights can power a number of these fiber optic light fixtures. The lights can also change color, which will change the color of the Laluna.

It comes in two sizes, 15.5 and 23.6 inches, and is priced at $1000 to $1200.

Funky Colorful Light Bulbs

Unique X KAWS Light Bulbs These funky light bulbs are limited edition and are out of stock – but we wanted to highlight them for their design quality. The Standard X KAWS light bulbs came in sets of three: red, purple, and green and would fit into any standard ceiling light socket or lamp. The playful (almost seedy) nature of these bulbs makes them ideal for restaurants, shops, or a bar/lounge setting.

Fiber Optic Fabric Light Display

Fiber Optic Fabric Light Display Not only have you got fiber optics weaved together to form a fabric mesh, these lights also respond to feeds coming in from Twitter and other sources. The fiber optics are connected to RGB LED lights that are controlled by an Arduino microcontroller that changes the colors and patterns.

50 Different Minds runs two computer programs that listen to Twitter tweets and follow flight arrivals and departures at the 9 busiest airports in the world. The animated effect looks like illuminated silk.” – 50 Different Minds

Free Standing: The ANEMONA Designer Lamp

The idea behind the ANEMONA (“the visually unsteady lamp”) is a lamp that can be positioned in any way possible. What keeps it stable are heavy balls at the base which roll around to balance out the lamp. By Ukrainian designer Igor Pinigin.
