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.
The link that calls it a blimp lamp should also be corrected. It has a metal frame giving it shape, so it’s really not a blimp.
OH, THE LUMINOSITY!
Damn, beat me to it. Along the same lines, put an audio speaker on the lamp, and every time you turn it on, a mp3 file plays over and over “Oh, the humanity! Oh, the humanity! Oh, the humanity!…”
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.
