I was inspired to make this lamp when I came across a set of halogen track lights one of my neighbors put in the trash. The fixtures on this track light reminded me of the streamline Art Deco designs of the cars and bicycles of the 1930s. Also reminiscent of an airplane jet engine...
So I ripped a few fixtures off the track, and decided to make a lamp with one of them.
Why "Decopunk"? One author has described Decopunk as a "sleek, shiny very Art Deco version" of Dieselpunk. While both are derivatives of the Steampunk movement, decopunk is inspired by the Art Deco and Streamline Moderne art styles. And in my opinion, these light fixtures certainly reflect this era.
(For an example of a Dieselpunk inspired version, see my Dieselpunk USB Lamp
So here's how I did it:
• Rotary tool
• Light fixture
• USB laptop lamp
• Silver paint
