I guess I’m rather lucky when it comes to cubicle settings, I just happen to have two windows in my view so I don’t know what it’s like to be “trapped in a cubicle”. However, I’m sure those of you who do will appreciate this prototype by Makoto Hirahara.
The Bright Blind gives you a sense of the outside world (Resident Evil anyone?) using electroluminescent sheets. And if your fake window is pouring in too much sunlight, a simple adjusting of the blind will turn it down for you.
If there is one room in the house where functional and practical take reign over style and class, it’s the bathroom. The bathroom, often small and cramped, needs space and outlets above all other things, aside from a toilet, sink and tub/shower that is. Duravit kept that in mind with its e-mood design and brought along a little style and class with it.
The e-mood furniture range is just about everything you could ask for in a bathroom accessory. It comes with all the lighting requirements, via touch LEDs, one may need in the bathroom and with its programmable mood lighting it also comes with all the lighting one may want in the bathroom. This includes a nightlight feature which turns on when it gets dark. You’ll also find a discretely placed tissue and soap dispenser, a cosmetic shelf and of course a hidden power outlet! You’ll also get the e-light element, e-wall fitted storage cabinet and a large illuminated glass e-screen.
Brightly colored lamps that don't completely look like the should be in an 8 year olds room can be hard to come by sometimes. This Happy Hour Lamp is great for any age, that is of course if you can handle the pretty yellows, oranges, blues and greens.
I, like your average woman, love candles. We can’t explain it; it’s just one of those great woman mysteries like miniatures and soft, fuzzy things. We eat that stuff up! So of course when I saw these candles my heart skipped a beat. They are by far the coolest candle I’ve ever seen… and they’re not even a real candle.
This faux candle comes packaged like the real deal. Its solid wax exterior houses a LED light which flickers like a real flame. The penultimate feature is that you can switch to a warm yellow glow or a cool blue to suit your mood or lighting needs. Of course, the best part is that you can blow it out… and blow it on.
Most people have either a coffee table or an end table near the couch or their favorite chair. Normally if you have the end table there is some kind of lamp on it. However, if you don't have a ton of space, or you just enjoy having a gadget for pretty much everything this gadget is the logical choice.
Now you can play play with matches, and not burn your finger tips. The Matchlight lamp set come with sixteen magnetic 'matches' that can be stuck together to create cool, geometric shapes, or as you see in the picture below - random, nonsense piles.
When most of us pick out a lamp we run to the store and pick out the one that has the correct type of lighting and something that is at least slightly aesthetically appealing. Well and some of us just try to find one that isn't priced through the roof. However, there is that small amount of people that pick out the more artistic lighting.
When I think calm and relaxing the first thing that pops into my head, like most of you I’m sure, is jellyfish. I could spend hours watching the majestic jellyfish float around in its underwater paradise, and if you buy the Jellyfish Mood Lamp, so could you.
I can never seem to resist writing up the geeky lighting fixtures. This one has more than just its geeky appeal though. It comes from Eco Lights which sells exactly what it sounds like, lights that have green friendly features.
