Let me start off by admitting that I both own and adore this lamp. Part ringed-planet, part UFO, part dance-floor lighting, the BLIMP lamp is far too cute to refuse. Mine hangs in my office, and while it doesn’t project much “useful” light, it is heartwarming to behold.
If you’re in the mood to have celestial shapes projected in all directions, like the idea of a all-but-huggable Unidentified Hanging Pendant in your home, or have a sleepy youngster to entrance with the colorful beams and glowing planetary ring, I highly recommend BLIMP.
[Edit, August 4, 2007] It appears this lamp was discontinued by IKEA; it’s nowhere on the site. Maybe try eBay?
