When you get bored of your grandma’s clap on/clap off, bedside-lamp, give the ZipLight a chance. Designed by Shannon South, this circular, bag-like structure unzips to reveal fluorescent light.

It’s a soft, hanging lamp… that unzips when you want more brightness. The zipper is translucent so, when the light “zips” on, the zipper’s teeth glow blue. Stats for Lamps That Zip To Dim Trending: Older & Chilly
