The featured Trap Light essentially traps waste energy and converts it into visible light. Although the result seems more for ambiance than for practical purposes, its eerily emitted luminance is entirely captivating.

Designed by Gionata Gatto and Mike Thompson of Studio Atùppertù, the Trap Light uses photoluminescent pigments to capture escaping light. With photoluminescent pigments embedded in its Murano glass body, it acts as both a shade and a light source.

According to Mocoloco, the Trap Light takes "30 minutes 'charge' of recycled light from a traditional incandescent or LED light bulb provides up to 8 hours of ambient lighting." I love the bottle shape it takes on. Stats for Blue Illuminating Bottles Trending: Older & Average
