The Beira Lamp by CreativeAffairs Looks Like a Full Chemist's Flask

As demonstrated by the Beira Lamp by CreativeAffairs, it's usually best to simplify the formal qualities of the object of inspiration in order to let your creation speak for itself. This cool contemporary pendant lamp mimics the look of a full Erlenmeyer flask, yet with a few subtle adjustments, sculptural simplifications and a bit of added flair, these pieces become truly unique.

The core of the light fixture comprises a suspending electrical cord with a lightbulb hidden within a small aluminum lampshade. The cable and the inner cone come in matching colors of black, silver or cobalt blue. A glass casing shaped like a chemistry beaker becomes the shell of the Beira Lamp by CreativeAffairs, affording a diffuse glow around its frosted base and establishing a playfulness about the effects of opaque and transparent materials with light.
