The HOOD lamp was created for the Swedish manufacturer Ateljé Lyktan and is the design of Form Us With Love. As you can see below this is rather unique and elegant, far from the usual, boring traditional lamp. Then again it still keeps some of the classic in the design.
A word from the designers:
When FORM US WITH LOVE moved to its new premises in Stockholm it turned to Ateljé Lyktan to develop a light for its conference table. Designed to be both a light source and a sound barrier in the vast studio space, the piece, called Hood, forms a halo over the table, catching loose sentences in its thick felt.
The Relumine project is a very good-looking lighting concept that uses two old lamps at a time connected by a longer glass tube to light up the space around them. It almost looks like the two lamps, which are, in most cases, of different sizes, are talking to each other through light and the general effect is awesome. It kind of reminds me about Pixar’s Luxo lamp, without all that jumping. The Relumine is said to use less energy thanks to the glass tube than the two lamps combined would consume if they would be working separately which is another reason to consider this particular lighting design. All you need now are some old lamps to revive through the Relumine project.

Getting ready to head off to college? Be prepared for a decorator’s worst nightmare when you open your dorm room door. Cinder block walls, concrete floors or industrial style tiling, nondescript windows that let in little light, and furniture that has seen better days all await your arrival. Do not get excited about the room’s lighting either, as dorm rooms are notoriously under or over-lit with harsh florescent lights. While you may be stuck with the furniture and can do nothing about the window itself, you can add additional lighting to make your dorm room shine.
At first glance this might look like a ordinary glass table with a cool design, but there’s more to it than that. In the middle of the table there are solar panels. The table was meant to be an outdoor furniture for restaurants or homes, and is supposed to make use of the solar panel to store energy during the day. At night this table can be lit up, and the attached lamp can use the stored energy to lit up the area. This is Firefly.
There’s a push button located in the center which is pressed to turn the light on. So whenever it gets dark, just like a firefly the table can be made to glow with a ‘natural’ source of energy. In addition to this, the lamp can also be used to highlight a message, symbol or word at the bottom of the table, since it also has the provision of keeping a stencil beneath it. The Firefly has been designed by Vuk Dragovic.
Well, probably this lamp won’t kill incandescent lamps altogether and at once, but it’s gonna slay some of them for sure. It’s called the “Allure” and it’s a pretty amazing floor lamp. It looks like a fantastic set of tentacles. Multiple light sources from the same lamp – that’s amazing! Amazing! And not only that, but while the lamp base is meant to stay in place on the ground, the lamp post rotates. Gorgeous, isn’t it?
The best part of the lamp is the remote. Why? Probably because it looks fabulous. But let me tell you about the remote anyway, ok? The remote’s got a power switch, a top light activator, a low light activator, and an RGB button. What do you do with that? You turn on all the different colors! At the base of the lamp is the source of the colors.
