YASUTOKI KARIYA

As an exception to the function-retaining rule of our trend, this final lighting fixture probably isn’t particularly useful. In fact, the ephemerality of these lights can only hinder the reading process, but the spectacle trumps the impracticality. Yasutoki Kariya, a student at Tokyo’s Musashino Art University, re-interpreted Newton’s Cradle, the classic desktop fixture second only to the paperweight, as a kinetic installation. Illuminating Isaac Newton’s energy transfer theories, Kariya replaced the steel pendulums with pendant lamps. As the ends swing (powered by pistons), they create the illusion that light is traveling from bulb to bulb. In reality, the lights are actually just smartly timed — but knowing the secret doesn’t detract from its hypnotic effect.

Our new house has can lighting in the kitchen, living room, dining room and family room. I purchased LED bulbs from HomeDepot,, they’re expensive but they don’t throw off heat and last for years!

@tsarstepan,
Yes they are!

I'm afraid to even find out what they cost. I'd probably have to sell my house to afford them and then I'd have nowhere to hang them -- a Gift of the Jellyfish Magi, or something.

@boomerang,
Here are some tips for decorating your room,

First of all, paper your walls,

Light up your room,

Ad a splash color,

Follow your metal urges,

Green looks preety in the room.

Scare your visitors when you "turn on" this pair of lights as an improvised chandelier:

@arkont12,
I agree with the type of lighting you prefer for your room. Perfect lightning is always the key to a nice looking home.
