— July 1, 2011 — Art & Design
If you think you'd like to take the BDLove Lamp home, you may find it interesting to note that these contemporary hybrid lampposts were actually conceived to increase comfort at transit terminals.

Ross Lovegrove is responsible for this enchanting conceptual design, which turns light saber-like torches into abstract seating. Broad rounded bases provide ideal benches for tired travelers and the glow of the bulbs above them makes these furnishing safe havens after dark.

These BD Barcelona Design standing lights can quite effectively act as streetlights as well as comfy bus stops. The organic lily pads can accommodate a couple of people as they wait for thee train or their ride outside the shopping center. The BDLove Lamp comes in several colors if you're tempted to have your very own on your back porch.
