One big-ass bulb. Achille Castiglione, one of the century's formost designers and responsible for many, many objects that have become part of our modern design vernacular (check out this super cool rotary phone...), designed this sweet little lamp with a big bulb, The Lampadina.
Castiglione died in 2002, but Flos has just started producing this lamp, which features an oversized frosted bulb and a base made from a film reel that allows the cord to be rolled up when necessary. We like it and think that they would be great additions to a bedside, especially when used in pairs or series. Available from Surrounding for $77. (via Funfurde) MGR
