    The last time I saw that; it was chasing the Enterprise.

      I am Cassettus…of Dub. Rewinding is futile. Your tape, as it has been, is over. From this time forward…please press…eject.

    I really like the way the website design breaks traditional boundaries. Taking away the ability to scroll forces one to linger and appreciate each element of the page. Bravo!

    Looks like a fire hazard.

      I don’t believe so.  The top appears be open, which negates the U.L. requirement of Critical Top Height and the Critical Radius is probably close to code. 

      But I don’t think it’s U.L./C.S.A listed anyway.

    The builder could have resolved the base/post a little better.

    I still listen to the occasional old tape…Because not everything is on the web, vinyl or CD .

    We all just can’t wait to have more hot plastic in our households.

    Pretty clever idea and business model, but 120 euros for a box of 36 shitty cassettes with zip-ties seems way too high. That kind of price makes the lamps seem less like a neat way to support creative artists, and more like buying the perfect hipster status symbol and house-party conversation piece.
