RGB Lamp by Nehne and Meier

An RGB Lamp! Now why didn't we think of that? Probably because we're a painting company, but that's beside the point. The point is, this lamp, designed by German and Swiss designers Fabian Nehne and Martin Meier, is clever and stylish. It's based on an additive color model:

It reminds me of light-based installations by Olafur Eliasson, one of my favorite artists working now (check out Colour Square Sphere, Round Rainbow, and Your Atmospheric Colour Atlas).

At first glance I thought the RGB lamp would be a perfect addition to our studio. Considering we mix and apply colors there, however, we need something that won't affect color perception--that's irony for you!

Seen on MocoLoco.

Oh, crap. I LOVE this. And I love that you give a shout out to Eliasson - one of my all time favs!

That lamp is AMAZING! I think I would give my right arm for *that*. Thanks for the sweet comment. I am now going to be an avid reader of your lovely blog!

So awesome! It'd be great in a loft. I don't even want to know the price!

Carrie, it's nice to know more Eliasson fans. And "oh, crap" is how I felt when I saw this lamp, too, ha!

Katie, right back atcha! I have already been back to your blog a bunch since finding you. Extensive archives worth browsing, folks.

India, I'm not even sure it has a price...scary, huh?!
