The Mario Bros Industrial Pipe Lamp looks like something straight out of level six. It is inspired by the ever-popular video game and its plumbing-influenced obstacles. Using industrial black iron pipes, the light fixture mimics the look of the game even down to the green portal Mario and the other characters often take.
Designed by Etsy seller Trowe, who is based in Woodstock, Georgia, the Mario Bros Industrial Pipe Lamp sports a single light that is diffused with a vintage clear recycled glass insulator. The lamp is turned on via a chain that happens to have either Mario or one of his gang dangling from it. The steampunk gamer design is available in five different versions that include ones with Luigi, Toad and Yoshi as well.
