Tide Light

Ever wanted a lamp that looks like a bulb? Us neither. But now it's been invented, we're amazed noone's done it earlier. 

Entitled 'Tide Light', it was created by designer Pierre Favresse. Favresse has been around the design block (in a good way). Until two years ago, he worked with Mathieu Lehanneur, a French designer who's created projects ranging from Cartier to Nike.

It was an experience that set Favresse off on the right track, launching his own studio in 2010 and winning a designer of the year award in 2011. His latest role is as the art director of Habitat.

The Tidelight is inspired by car headlights and, specifically, 'diffraction'. And if you want to impress your friends at the pub later, diffraction is when a beam of light is spread out by passing through a narrow opening (AKA how car headlights work).

All this adds up to a show stopping lamp that'll work well in either living or bedroom. Keep it out of the kitchen for obvious reasons - tripping over it while doing your best Heston Blumenthal impression would be hazardous. (£345, I/Object)
