IKEA unveils the Death Star-like PS 2014 Pendant Lamp

ikea-lampIKEA has probably never created something as nerdy as this before and they’ve done so unknowingly. While the home furniture big shot claims this lamp is nothing more than a decorative lighting solution called the IKEA PS 2014 Pendant Lamp, we see things differently. For us, this one’s and exploding Death Star that sheds light every time the right strings are pulled, literally. Measuring a diameter of 14 inches, with a cord length of 4 feet and 11 inches, the lamp dims the light manually by changing the shape of the shade. Designer David Wahl states “When the lamp is closed it resembles a ball of fire, with the color of the arms creating an exciting light.” Instead, we think the lamp looks like a glowing Death Star when closed!

The lamp is priced at approximately $70 and comes sans the bulb. IKEA recommends LEDARE LED bulb E26 600 lumen clear to illuminate this fantastically geeky peace. Weighing in at just 2.3 kg, the IKEA PS 2014 Pendant Lamp is the perfect addition to your living space, particularly if you spend most of your day dreaming about Luke Skywalker or Princess Leia, whoever suits your taste.
