The Maple Edison Lamp strips the lighting process back to basics. The lamp consists of an original Edison 40W Filament bulb, supported by a clean maple base. I find Edison bulbs very stunning and aesthetically pleasing on their own and the minimalist design of this product allows it to shine – pun absolutely intended. I’m also very fond of the flip switch, which are increasingly rare these days. They bring back memories of near electrocution from the Victorian building where I went to school. Fond times. The design is so simple that it almost looks like an experiment being carried out in a Science class. In an industrial setting, it’d be the perfect form of lighting.
Via Dot & Bo
Last week I featured a post on Pipette Vinegar Bottles that were inspired by chemistry. This water pitcher by Dot & Bo is designed in a similar vein. It uses a function inspired by science experiments to pump water through a tube where it is dispensed into a glass at the other end. This simple mechanism produces a sleek water dispenser that will get people talking at the dinner table. Dot & Bo suggest that the dispenser can be used for alternative liquids too, such as mouthwash. It would have quite a cool ‘lab’ feel to it if neon green mouthwash was stored within.
