Cologne designer Thomas Schnur has created squishy lamps made out of rubber.

The electrical components of these lamps by Thomas Schnur are encased in a heat-resistent silicone shell, molded into the form of a traditional desk lamp.

An articulated steel rod concealed within the rubber casing allows the lamp to be angled as desired.

The lamps were on show at the Salone Satellite showcase for young designers at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan last month.

Schnur presented the lamps alongside a pair of room dividers, which were also on display at the Objects for the Neighbour exhibition as part of design at imm Cologne earlier this year.

This isn't the first time Schnur has worked with rubber. A couple of years ago the designer made a rubber table with suction cups on the legs.

Here's a description from the designer:


‘Rubber Lamp’ is created by the interest in rubber and the in and outside of products. The table lamp consists of two parts: The flexible steel rod, the switch, the electricity components inside and the heat resistant silicone outside.

The cover protects the inner components and gives the lamp an organic and warm attitude. The shape of the lamp preserves the original form because there is no reason to change the anonymous designed shape.
