Ion Lamp by Schoolhouse Electric at werd.com
Ion Lamp by Schoolhouse Electric

Time goes forward. Design however, seems to be stuck in reverse. But look back over your shoulder and you’ll recognize the power of classic craftsmanship. The Ion Lamp, with its triple-coil Edison bulb, porcelain base, and twisted cloth power cord is about as retro as you can get without a time machine.

Cessna 182 Skylane Lamp

Only an aviation buff would know (or care) that this lamp is made using a vintage retention nut and piston off of a Cessna 182 Skylane airplane propeller. The rest of us will just think, wow, that looks like a nice desk lamp. And so shiny, too.

Beer Bottle Plumbing Fixture Desk Lamp

You’ve probably heard of steampunks and their crafty retro-Victorian movement; well, this could be an offshoot, we’ll call it junkpunk. Unless you have a better term for a desk lamp made out of a beer bottle, galvanized pipe and fittings.

Light-Light Floating Lamps

How do these “floating” lamps work? The answer is electromagnets. Incidentally, this is also the answer to how most of Criss Angel’s illusions work.

Vintage Motorcycle Lamp

After life as a motorcycle, Virginia-based artist, Betsy Ryland, grants these vintage cycle scraps immortality by turning them into artistic industrial designs. Her lamps are made of a spring, shock absorber and transmission gear standings on a base crafted from a brake caliper. Each lamp is one of a kind, unless you order a matching set. The artist will do custom work, too.

Roost Edison Lamp at werd.com
Roost Edison Lamp

After a 40-hour week spent radiating under the soul-sucking office fluorescents, you’ll really appreciate the warmth of the Edison Lamp. And, we don’t mean hey-these-100-year-old-bulbs-are-starting-to-smoke warmth. We mean the soft glow of a filament bulb. With a simple glass cylinder design, the base is made of shesham wood and the details are nickel.  Don’t even think about screwing one of those curly-Q eco bulbs into this thing.

lighTIN Beer Can Light

British furniture designer, Thomas Stanley, is a man’s man. While enjoying a nice foamy Guinness in a “widget” can, a lightbulb went off in Stanley’s head and the lighTIN was born. This eco-friendly design is made of mostly recycled materials and delivers bright, long-lasting light from an LED bulb. And if Guinness is a little too heavy for you, the lighTIN also comes in Stella, Heineken & Foster’s designs.

Plumen Light Bulbs

Here’s a bright idea – sorry, had to say it. Compact fluorescent bulbs are better than old-school incandescent ones. In fact, they save 80% more energy. They last much longer, too. And now, Plumen has added some beauty. Instead of hiding the bent tubing, Plumen has spread it out giving a touch of elegance to this intelligent technology.
