Are you looking at the outline of lamp or just the glow of a bulb? Or maybe it’s both? This lamp, you see, is made entirely from the fluorescent tube which is used to emit its light.
Lamp neo-N is the brainchild of Atelier dsgn. As minimalist as you can get, its form doubles as its entire function. A single, thin fluorescent tube snakes upwards, bent one way then the next, to create a shape that echoes that of a traditional side lamp. Viewed from above, it’s three neat concentric circles; in profile from the right direction, it’s the silhouette of a lamp; from elsewhere it’s an artistic tangle of light. Not one for the klutzes amongst us, though. As of yet, there are no details about pricing or availability. [Design Boom]
