The Schwarzes Gold Lamp's sole purpose might be to provide light, but it does so in a dark and mysterious way. This is due in large part to the materials it is made out of. A mixture of ground coal, flour and water, the deep black of the lampshade is a natural result of such organic materials.

The final project of industrial product design student Ingo Schuppler, who attends the Coburg University of Applied Science in Germany, the Schwarzes Gold Lamp encourages people to think differently about the energy they use on a daily basis. The Schwarzes Gold Lamp is a sustainable design that is "durable yet refined, symbolic but fully functional," as written by Fast Co. Design.
