Glowing Banana Lamps

Last year, Studio Job (warning: auto-sound) in Belgium produced a series of lamps shaped like peeled bananas. Five of the models lie in various reposed positions and the sixth is a hanging pendant. The gold-plated peels reflect the LED-generated light from the fruit itself.

The project was inspired by pop art of the 60s, especially that of Andy Warhol. Dezeen quotes the Samuel Vanhoegaerden Gallery:

"Bananas are the most popular fruit in the world... a nice reference to the other icons of the Pop Art, the Marilyns, the Campbell's Soups, the Dollars signs, Coca-Cola... distilling the beauty out of the popular is an art form itself," said a statement from the gallery, which also cited former artist-in-residence Keith Haring as a reference for the exhibition.
