Concrete Lamps

It's always exciting to see  concrete being used in a way you least expect it.  You normally think of lighting as, well... "light." Itai Bar-on is an Israeli company that has introduced a line of concrete lamps called the Bullet Collection.

The light is diffused through a Perspex  (acrylic) plate and they are available in a variety of different tints such as orange, blue or grey. Their web site explains that is was a collaboration between Itai Bar-on and Oded Webman, a Tel-Aviv based designer.

Their free-form concrete tiles are also worth checking out.
