Wonsuk Cho's 'X-Ray Light' mimics the lightbox used to view radiology results and brings hospital-inspired decor into the home. Cho took X-rays of different light bulbs and mounted each X-ray onto a black box to complete the effect.

We've seen a number of other X-ray-inspired designs. Check them out in the related articles below.

Implications - Hospital-inspired design allows consumers to make light of more serious issues, serving as a strange, yet interesting way to add irony and uniqueness to any product. Subjects that were once sacred and dark are now handled more lightly, which signifies a shift in today's humor and the general attitude of consumers towards health issues and other serious matters.
