We recently brought you typography lamps, but check out this new gallery of LED lamps from the design company Character, from Finland.

Implications - The revival of typography was fueled by consumers' focus on retro themes, signage and fashion.

By turning cast-off signs into crave-worthy interior accent pieces, these designers saved lamps from the landfill and reinvented them into typographical art.
