NOT another Blanda Blank lamp!





DSCN1421

Materials:
- NOT lamp
- BLANDA Blank salad bowl
- FIXA hole-cutting thingy

Description: This hack is pretty self-explanatory. I have one of the old silver NOT lamps, and after many years the polypropylene shade has become a bit scratched and icky. So I replaced it with the 28cm/11″ stainless steel Blanda salad bowl. I drilled a circle of holes in the bottom and used the FIXA as a punch. I think the curve of the bowl merges perfectly with the NOT.

Utby. Now available in White!
TV fits in Besta
I’m with you, Jules!

No, I don’t want to miss out on any hack. Tell me when the move happens. Here are my details:

  1. Well done and a very good idea to repair something instead of just tossing it out and replacing it by something new!

    Looks great, but what about light passing through? I guess this metal bowl will darken the whole thing pretty much… I would add drilled wholes for more transparency and crazy look :)

      The NOT-lamp is an uplight designed to reflect the most of light off the ceiling, so exchanging the shade for a metal one will not darken it.
