The X Wing Lamp looks like something that would have come out of the 'TRON: Legacy' movie instead of 'Star Wars,' yet the shape of the light fixture is clearly inspired by the starfighter. It is simply the minimalist framing and use of neon lights that brings to mind the other sci-fi flick. It is this modern touch, however, that really makes the X Wing Lamp stand out.

Designed by Benjamin Rice, an industrial designer based in Manchester, United Kingdom, the X Wing Lamp was created for the SPIN LONDON event, an urban cycling show. It was made in collaboration with Northern Backdrop Interior design using Old Raleigh Grifters which were sourced from Ebay/Gumtree. An impressive model, it brings an air of mystery and intrigue in addition to a futuristic flair.
