Mr. Light, That’s My Name – That Name Again is Mr. Light

Tomás Alonso has created the Mr. Light series of lamps – not unlike the Plof lamp from Yonoh, but not totally like it either.  Mr. Light is designed around the new LED version of the T-8 fluorescent, and makes the LED T-8 the centerpiece of the fixture.  I like the form of the function – my concern would be spillage.  I’m one of those people who actually enjoys designing with fluorescent sources, but only when I can control the field angle.  All that being said, this is a pretty clever light, and I’m digging it.

Plof – A Lamp I Might Accidentally Tip Over

I’ve seen this lamp around lately, and I have neglected to write about it.  I’m not really sure why.

Plof is a lamp from Yonoh; it’s a tube stand with a cold cathode on the end of it.  It’s an interesting design, and it’s unique.  The only thing that I know would bother me is the exposed source – my wife has a lamp that’s essentially a bare lamp inside of a frosted glass box.  It’s a little harsh on my eyes.

Thanks, Yanko!
