It's been a while since I posted about cool lamps, hasn't it…
My wife sent me this lamp actually, from a colleague of hers at RD2 – meet the Yantouch Jellyfish:
This lamp seems to be mainly an ambiance lamp – a color changing LED source illuminates the inside, and the rear of the fixture has one "tentacle thing" that keeps the lamp tilted up. You can either have the top of the lamp on, the underside of the lamp on, or both together from what I have read about the lamp. The user can choose the color saturation and intensity, have a random speed random color roll, or just have it sit pretty on the table. In a way, it reminds me of Willem van der Sluis' design for the Philips Living Color lamp.
The Yantouch Jellyfish is the brainchild of Hsiao-pin Lin and Ken Ouyang. Interesting piece!
You have to check out the Yantouch Jellyfish website too – they have a color picker interface that shows some light emanating from the rear of the lamp:
