ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Jake Von Slatt tells Boing Boing, "I got an email this morning from Flaminio Bovino, a young Italian designer who though I might like this amazing blimp lamp he made. He was correct!"
Isn’t ‘zeppelin blimp’ nonsensical? Zeppelin is a rigid airship. A blimp is not.

It’s all good fun until it bursts into flame and crashes on your desk…
better watch what wattage bulb you put in there
Good thing it wasn’t a gas lamp.
From the thumbnail image on my screen, I thought it was a tampon.
