Mushroom Lamp

Tuesday, February 12th, 2013

Well, there's never been a more timely day to buy an LED lamp in the shape of a mushroom cloud. Japanese design firm h220430 created a very limited edition of the hauntingly beautiful lamp, sold through Somewhere Tokyo.

From the designers:

After the end of the Cold War between the U.S. and the Soviet Union, the crisis of nuclear wars was believed to have disappeared. However, even after the Cold War, India, Pakistan, China, and France have continued the development of nuclear weapons. The number of nuclear powers is still increasing and the crisis of nuclear wars has not yet ended.

At present, there exists the incredible total of 23,000 nuclear weapons, which are said to be capable of annihilating the whole earth several times over. Under these hopeless circumstances, what we can do to aim for a nuclear-free world is to have concern about this issue, to deepen our understanding, to have discussions, and to continue to advocate the elimination of nuclear weapons. We would like to create a catalyst by incorporating Mushroom Lamp into our daily lives, and to help to lighten the hearts of those who hope for peace in the world.
