LightMate: the new lighting solution (or, um, companion)


I love artistic innovation: the world would be a much more boring place had people like John Lennon, Frida Kahlo or Andy Warhol never been born.

Having said that, I don't always understand where artists/innovators are coming from, and that's the case with this design...

Francesca Lanzavecchia has designed something called the LightMate. According to her website, "LightMates are soft anthropomorphic pillows and warming lamps. Their different sizes answer to everyone's need of heat; a mate to hug or a huge companion you can lay on."

It's certainly more groovy than your usual lamp or heating pad, and multi-functionality is always fun, but I'm not sure I need my light source to be anthropomorphic... or to come with a tail.

Via Boing Boing.
