Schoolhouse Electric Creates Eccentrically Bare-Boned Light Fixtures

I love the aesthetic of Schoolhouse Electric's light fixtures. Simple, quirky and full of strange experimentation, each light seems to draw on the theme of a science laboratory -- some more than others, of course. Considering that people are starting to appreciate the transparency of products both physically and metaphorically, these new lamps will be a hit for sure.

Portland-based Schoolhouse Electric's lighting fixture line seems to also draw inspiration from the city's industrial past. With exposed bulbs and cords, each lamp presents a lot of character. Suitable for just about any style interior, Schoolhouse Electric's lamps are priced between $85 and $250.

Looking at Schoolhouse Electric's creations, I see a functional art form more than anything else. Stats for Lablike Lighting Trending: Older & Mild
