Fiat Lux Lamp with floating on/off orb wins lamp design of the decade.

Of all the lighting fixture/lamp concepts and designs I’ve seen, the Fiat Lux Lamp designed by Constance Guisset and Grégory Cid easily takes the crown for coolest, most innovative lamp design of the decade — the next decade. Some may see this admission as coming a wee bit early seeing as how the next decade doesn’t start for a couple more days. Even still, though I already know how fast technology does in fact progress and evolve, I’m left wondering how anyone can top the Fiat Lux design for at least another 15-20 years. (Hint: that’s a challenge please).

Before I get too much more excited and stumble over my words, perhaps you’d like to know how it works hmm?

The design is simple yet ingenious and straight out of a sci-fi movie. Instead of the tried and true on/off switch that usually adorns some solid surface, the Fiat Lux uses a levitating orb that when placed underneath the lamp instantly illuminates the lamp above. The basic idea involves magnetism and the whole emerging filed of wireless electricity of which magnetism has a very important role.

Who’s intrigued and wishing we were counting down the hours until 2030?
