he writes, “i wanted to have a kitchen light which transports something of the context. it works also on the table in your office or in your living room. all you need is a lampshade, lamp holder, a cable, a cable-switch and a bulb. to remove the glass-volume from the flask, you just have to unscrew the bottom of the body in left direction, then you can pull the glass-volume out. that’s it.”

unfortunately, ikea doesn’t sell this flask anymore.

    Could it be a fire hazard?

    There is a Mexican restaurant in West Portal in San Francisco that has lamps like this… they use Ikea watering cans, colanders, and other random objects. They look pretty neat.

    Hotness. I like the illuminated floating flask. I think if there were a few of them in a row (like the proverbial group of three) it would make an even bigger statement. Well done!

    i ACTUALLY LIKE THE ONE WITH THE LAMP SHADE- but I think as a light fixture leave something to be desired- it is a personal taste
