Robolux Studio Whimsical Custom-Made Lamps

If you're looking for a unique light, you don't have to look much further than Robolux Studio. They've got a bunch of whimsical lamps that are ready, and which you can buy via Etsy. All in all, they look pretty awesome.

Robolux Studio specializes in making unique lighting fixtures from repurposed, recycled, and reused industrial artifacts. We have trouble deciding which lamp we like best, from the Flower Power Lamp to the Mad Scientist Lab Lamp.

The concept reminds us of the film noir movie genre, or old gumshoe detective movies from the 40s and 50s. The industrial artifacts that are used in the creation of these lamps are really well chosen. The Mad Scientist Lab Lamp features a deco style vintage ACROSET volt meter, which, in turn, has been combined with some light fixtures. It has a glowing blue glass cone, thanks to LED lighting and a rotary-style dimmer.

The Flower Power Lamp is made from an electric fan from the 40s. The enclosure, which is made out of brushed steel, has been painted orange inside, giving the light a great warm touch. Light spills out of the enclosure in an interesting fashion. The only down side of these beautifully-made lamps is the price: they cost between $375 to $725.
