Kodachrome Lamps

Film Slides Get Enlightened & Repurposed as Shade

— January 28, 2010 — Eco
This creative Kodachrome lamp shade by New York artist and designer Sabina Batelman uses old 35mm film slides in its construction. The repurposed photographic slides create a visual 'show' while working to dampen the glare from a table lamp.

Sabina Batelman attended the University of Massachusetts where she majored in communications and broadcasting. She also attended the School of Visual Arts in New York to study film and video.

Implications - I think it'd be amazing to witness this Kodachrome lamp in person. Just imagine seeing frames from iconic movies being projected onto your walls, simultaneously illuminating the room and offering a beautiful spectacle for your eyes' enjoyment.

I will probably try to create my own Kodachrome lamp at home and fill it with frames from children's movies.
Trend Themes
1. Repurposed Art - Opportunity for artists and designers to repurpose materials and create unique and visually appealing products, such as the Kodachrome lamp shade.
2. Nostalgia-inspired Design - Demand for products that evoke nostalgia and utilize vintage or retro elements, as seen in the use of old 35mm film slides in the Kodachrome lamp shade.
3. Multifunctional Lighting - Growing interest in lighting designs that serve dual purposes, such as the Kodachrome lamp shade that not only illuminates a room but also creates a visual 'show' with the projected slides.
Industry Implications
1. Art and Design - Artists and designers in various fields can explore the repurposing of materials to create unique and visually striking products like the Kodachrome lamp shade.
2. Home Decor - Home decor companies can tap into the nostalgia trend by offering products that incorporate vintage or retro elements, such as lighting fixtures using old film slides.
3. Entertainment - The use of film slides in lighting designs presents an opportunity for the entertainment industry to create immersive experiences using projected visuals.
