Thursday Salute to Originals: Customization with a Whimsical Flair

The holiday season tends to bring out the inner child in each of us, and this lamp design is playing on that same nostalgic sentiment. Inspired by the plastic toy capsules inside of vending machines, the creative team at Design Systems envisioned The Capsule Lamp.

Before the capsules are filled with the brightly colored toys, the fixture appears as a rather prototypical modern light fixture. When filled with the tiny trinkets, the function is transformed from mere light source to a full blown show-and-tell session showcasing your treasured objects (or whatever you choose to display).

All of the fun of a vending machine without having to pay 25 cents – now that’s original!
