Bulbous Disaster Lighting
The Meltdown Lamp by Johan Lindsten Pays Tribute to Fukushima

The nuclear disaster in Fukushima, Japan, turned many people’s lives upside down; the Meltdown Lamp not only pays tribute to this tragic event, it also interprets it in the form of home decor. The bulbous glass lampshade represents a last defence before a full-blown blight while the lightbulb that appears to be melting through the Meltdown Lamp symbolizes the danger itself.

Designed by Johan Lindstén for Cappellini, an Italian company, the Meltdown Lamp essentially attempts to make something beautiful out of a scary situation. Available in a myriad of colorways, the glass and cord complement each other beautifully. Nevertheless, the star of the show has to be the bulb itself, which inspires a range of emotions from fear and dismay to uncertainty and hope.
