The New Bulbing Lamp Collection Uses Lampshades That Are Really Just 2D Cutouts


Remember the Bulbing Lamps, which consisted of two-dimensional lighting elements that look three-dimensional when viewed at an angle? Yeah, those were awesome. Well, unless you prefer your lamps to look like lamps instead of random sculptural objects like skulls, giant bulbs, or a snow globe. In case you didn’t pick up one because of that, you’ll be glad to see the more conventional-looking desk lamps that make up their new collection.

Like the original line, the lamps use an acrylic glass sheet that’s been laser-etched with intricate lines that are illuminated from the sides. When glowing, those angled lines give it the appearance of depth, making each lamp look like a wireframe 3D structure that, somehow, lights up the surrounding area.


Three designs are included in the new Bulbing Lamps collection: CLASSi (which is styled like an old-school bedside lamp), DESKi (a taller lamp with an angled shade), and ZIGGi (another taller lamp with an angled arm and shade). Instead of random objects like the previous collection, this set consists of conventional-style shaded lamps, so they should be easier to match with any existing décor. It’s also not relegated as a room accent either, as the lamps now emit a light that’s bright enough to let you read comfortably, all while looking just as decorative as their predecessors. You can even dim the LEDs, too, making it ideal for use as a night light. Each one comes with a steel base, birchwood arms, and a 50,000-hour lifespan lighting element.


A Kickstarter campaign is currently running for the new line of Bulbing Lamps. Pledges to reserve a unit starts at £43.
