Concrete Lamps In Our Homes
Available in two versions, as a table lamp and as a pendant light, the Release and Split light fixtures are the creation of Dror Kaspi for Ardoma Design and they look particularly intriguing. As the name suggests, they look like they’re split in two and the split reveals the glowing light. This creates a contrast between the concrete and the light.
Concrete Home Design created an innovating line of lamps. The Ideeal ceiling and table lamps explore the unique particularities of concrete and use them to look chic and stylish. The designs are modern-industrial with simple and clean lines and smooth angles. They attract quite a bit of attention with their fancy forms and glass sections.
Concrete can be lightweight, even though this seems unusual. Further more, it can look very light if shaped in a certain manner. Designer Christian Mohaded knows this very well after creating the Andes Lamps. They have a fluid and delicate design and this allows them to create a sense of weightlessness which is not usually a characteristic of this material.
Small and really versatile, the Nomad table lamp combines the ruggedness of concrete with the delicate beauty of the vintage Edison light bulb. The result is a warm and very pleasant accessory which can look charming on desks and nightstands. This charm is partially given by the combination between concrete and glass but also by the warm glow of the bulb.
A similar combination is features by this desk lamp that we found on Etsy. It has a sturdy and compact concrete base shaped like a cube and it illuminates using a vintage Edison bulb. It’s a handcrafted product which means that each piece is different and unique, with its own imperfections.
Edison light bulbs are pretty popular right now. They’re appreciated for their warm glow and their beautiful designs and a lot of table lamps take advantage of this to look as simple and as charming as possible. One example is this concrete lamp from ConcWood Street.
The fun thing about the Screscent lamp is that it’s actually only half of a lamp. It’s as if a full lamp was cut in half and split in two. It’s made of concrete and it can displayed in all sorts of interesting and funky ways. The design was 3D modeled in order to ensure a steady and balanced form.
Geometric designs are pretty hot right now too. If you like the trend, perhaps you’d like to also add one of these little lamps to your home décor as well. This is the Cubistic lamp. It has a solid concrete base and an exposed bulb which together allow it to look minimalistic and quite fancy.
If you like the idea of having a concrete lamp but can’t really find one that suits your needs, maybe you’d like to craft one yourself. A DIY concrete lamp can be a really nice home project. If you’d like to make a floor lamp similar to this one, make sure you have two containers for the mold, some timber, insulating material, electric cable, a switch, a craft knife and lean concrete.
