Bruno Rainaldi's Mummy Lamp Features a Simple Yet Scary Style

Like a morbidly wrapped mummy, the Mummy Lamp features a simple aesthetic with a rather scary concept. Thank goodness the lighting fixture itself is not frightening to look at. Instead, it will probably create an interesting focal point in whichever room it is hung.

Designed by Bruno Rainaldi for the manufacturer Bilumen, the Mummy Lamp is made up of metallic ribbons that are then wrapped in concentric circles for a deathly look. Because they don't overlap each other, the ribbons' unevenness lends texture to the overall fixture while also letting light peak through.

I particularly like the gold leaf interior of the Mummy Lamp. Its warm glow offsets the disturbing mummy reference, if you ask me. The Mummy Lamp is available in different finishes, including charcoal gray, white chalk or "greyge."
