Artist Keita Ogawa has won the bronze award at the 22nd Koizumi International Lighting Design Competition for Students with this quirky lamp design incorporating LED lights.
The melting effect serves as a reminder of our diminishing natural resources and urges viewers to consider sustainable energy. I love that Ogawa used energy-efficient LED lights for this design. Although I guess if he’d used actual Edison bulbs not only would that lessen the impact of his message, but they’d heat up and actually melt things!
Unfortunately this lamp is not for sale (yet), but I know I want one!
