Light up those circuit boards

CircuitBoard_StandingLamp.jpg

Where do old circuit boards go after the technology they powered has become obsolete? If they're lucky, they get recycled into arresting pieces of home decor, like this circuit board standing lamp. The concept is inspired in its simplicity - just surround each bulb with circuit boards to cast a soft glow that's nonetheless got that modern edge. Every circuit board is different, of course, so no two lamps are exactly the same.

At $900 from Uncommon Goods, this lamp doesn't come cheap, even though I'd feel good that it's made from materials that aren't biodegradable and would otherwise sit in a landfill for centuries to come. A less daunting option might be the circuit board table lamps for $220-$280, but I think the standing lamp brings a much stronger accent to a room.
