The title given to The Slinky Light by Georgiosi doesn't leave much to the imagination. Selling for approximately $120, it seems as though this light design could be made at home with an old slinky and some glue.

Georgiosi seems to have used the ever-popular slinky toy in an attempt to hide the light fixture. The end product is amazing, and is worth checking out in the gallery above!

Implications - Re-appropriating familiar objects -- like this slinky light does -- is one way that a business can create a special product with familiarity. Finding new meaning for recognizable objects is an interesting way to re-contextualize the way consumers think about household items like lights.
