Bendy Lights and Foam Mattress Lights?


I keep finding things in twos lately – I just ran across two interesting articels related to home and interior lighting that felt like they needed a double billing.  One of them is a bendy twisty tube called the Bamboo Light System, and the other is called the Zipper Light – and it looks like it’s glowing foam eggcrate!

Here’s the Bamboo Lighting System:

Pedro Reinoso designed the Bamboo Light System for the retailer Yamagiwa.  The system is a series of connectable pieces that can be bent and shaped.  Floor lamps, table lamps, hanging lamps – Pablo’s website has a pretty chandelier-esque fixture created.  Here’s the Yamagiwa’s english-language product page.




The second product is called the Zipper Silicone Lumainaire, designed by John Niero of justnotnormal design –  it looks like eggcrate at the first glance, but it’s a silicone sheet with LEDs embedded into it.  The panels zip together like a quilt, which is the zipper light’s concept.  It has a zipper on its edges so that you can connect it to itself, mount it to a wall, or whatever else you decide to zip it to for fun.  Or maybe you’re doing some serious zipping, not the fun kind.





Thanks, Unplggd and DVICE!
