Steve Faletti's Radiant Floor Lamp Turns On Using a Water Valve

Don't be deceived -- the Radiant Floor Lamp is no radiator -- although it will probably supply some heat when turned on. Instead, it is a quirky and unique light fixture, as its name suggests. The lengthy, u-shaped fluorescent bulbs have been cleverly assembled in such a way as to resemble old apartment radiators.

Created by industrial designer Steve Faletti, the Radiant Floor Lamp will add character to any home. As though concentrating on the word 'fun' in 'functional,' this lamp even turns on using a standard water spigot valve handle, just like an actual radiator. Faletti writes, "It is part of a series exploring our relationship to the objects and technologies that provide us with ample and ubiquitous interior light." It gives new meaning to light fixtures.
