Israeli-based designer Chen Bikovski created adorable cactus lamps that when illuminated, reveal a shadow that appears to look like the spiky succulent. Inspired by popup books, these lamps spread a cactus-shaped light on the wall, creating a warming glow that makes your space feel a little more homey. The lamps come in small steel pots, to give the light-shaped vegetation they hold a more authentic look.

These original lamps also prove to be a low maintenance alternative to owning house plants, adding both light and flare. The artist describes popup lighting as "a unique wall fixture that combines functionality and art," illuminating a room, but also making for an eye-catching piece. The fixture becomes both art and object, fusing design with practicality and making something beautiful and fun out of everyday items.
