No one wants to be told what they can and cannot do in their home, even when it comes to lamps. So someone has finally found a way to stick it to ‘big lighting’ with a lamp that you can install almost anywhere. Our deliverer of illumination freedom is an artist named Simon Frambach who created the Soft Light from squishy polyurethane foam, allowing you to cram and squeeze it into any spot.
It’s sadly not for sale, at least yet, and that’s either because Frambach created it as a one-off piece of art, or because the giants of the lighting industry — GE, Sylvania, etc — have stymied his commercial dreams. Either way, it’s a humorous take on the bedside lamp since you can use it as both an actual pillow and the ultimate night time reading lamp. [Simon Frambach via Dezeen]
