Blimp Lamp

Take a gander at this gorgeous blimp lamp from Flaminio Bovino (does that mean something like “flaming cow” in Italian?). Entitled “Zep Lamp”, it’s meant to evoke the early German zeppelins along with a steel support girder. The detailing is just beautiful, look at the back side:

Very steampunkish, but classy, not looking like an 8th grade art project. Stunning. I would put this in either my conservatory, lower level library, reading library, telescope collection room, or gold bar storage room on my yacht. The lamp itself is actually in “low volume numbered production”, so you can purchase it- although no specifics are listed and the designer is based in Italy. (via steampunk workshop)
