A couple of weeks ago, the kind folks at KOH Concepts delivered a cute little lamp to our design studio for review. Just a while earlier before, they had already emailed me some pictures of this latest product of theirs and I must say I was rather intrigued by the attached images. I mean, it's a lamp which happens to look like a... jerry can. And they look very versatile.
You could be wondering what a jerrycan has to do with a lighting device. If you get past that, be assured the KOH lamp, when switched on, looks very pretty in an unconventional manner.
Granted, this thing is not designed to brightly lit up a room. Nor is it even made to function as a reading lamp next to your favorite armchair. What the KOH lamp do, in my opinion, is to create an atmosphere inside our homes (the word 'club-like' suddenly runs through my mind) . Great for those late night television sessions...
We love that the body of the KOH Lamp is made of a plastic material which is 100% recyclable. Given the nature of the material used, this mood lamp produces a soft glow (the color of light depends on the color of the lamp chosen; my review piece is in a sunburst orange tone) which works unobtrusively in the background. The plastic also makes the lamp extremely light to bring around your home or to a party elsewhere. Installation is easy and fuss-free. A bulb even comes with every new lamp!
