Swedish ceramicist Mia Göransson designed Eyjafjallajokull as a response to the Icelandic volcano of the same name. You may remember Eyjafjallajokull because of its eruption last May, spewing volcanic ash into the sky. The lamp consists of an oversized bulb counterbalanced by a mass of ash that functions as an on/off switch. This is Göransson’s first product design, and she moves past her comfort zone of ceramic in favor of aluminum, porcelain and blown glass.
The Eyjafjallajokull lamp was produced by The Fifty Fifty Projects in Sweden. Odds are unlikely that you will find this interesting fixture at your local IKEA. Sure is pretty though. [via CoDesign]
