Whimsical flickering LED circuit-board sculptures

Seen at New York Comic-Con, which I'm presently attending: Banana Design's whimsical bare-bones lights, which consist of flickering LEDs set into sweet, cut-out circuit boards that look like candelabras, fireplaces and angler fishes. The 9V battery on the back acts as a stand and stabilizing weight.


  1. I could swear I’d seen this on BoingBoing before, but now I can’t find it.  Maybe I’m just having Deja Vu from too many bananas.

  2. I’m bummed that they’re not kits. Soldering shit together is fun.

    I made this trippy lantern with a busted path-lamp and a circuit board from Maker Shoppe.

    I’d love to see HOW Banana Design made the board / circuits. Almost like printing.

  3. I wish they were named a bit better… Each individual piece is a ‘flickering candelabrum’ or a ‘fireplace simulacrum…’ The weird pluralization is grating. More importantly, I also think it’s a bit of a bummer that they’re not kits.
