Pipe lamps Answered

These lamps made by Kozo Lamps in Israel with bits of plumbing are pretty inventive and cool. I'm not a fan of stuff made with plumbing normally, but I do have to admit that the knob light switches are a nice touch.

Thanks to Tool Using Animal for finding the source.

Darn, and here I was hoping for a wooden smoking pipe lamp.

If you must try this at home, remember to earth the metal pipe, or, if you go for uPVC instead, don't forget you want the most awesome dumpvalve you can find, or it will only shoot the lightbulb a few tens of feet. ;-) Of course, it's nice to see metal pipe not being filled with, shall we say, frangible creating materials...

It should run quite cold, actually, compared with a regular lamp of the same type, as the steel will act as a large heatsink.

Who needs an instructable? Seems like everything you need to know is right there in the pictures. The pipes go together as shown and all you need to do is wire up the electrical. Anyone reading this is already creative enough to do that.

Thanks, good find. So the faucets are the light switches after all.

Oh, I *so* hope that tap is actually a dimmer switch!

Good point. That would be excellent.

it might just be a rotation type switch (turn to click on, continue to next click and it's off).

Yes, but I like the idea of turning up the tap so that more light flows out of the tap...

Yes, one could accomplish that with a well built dimmer (a poorly built one, as I have had experience with, will make the bulb "ring".....you may not hear it, but younger folks, and those of us that still retain our upper range, WILL hear it, and it is nearly as annoying as the "teen repellent sound" used by some shop owners).

One could achieve nearly the same thing with a three way switch and bulb. The "turn" wouldn't be a smooth, but it's still work.

This one is very nice designed. A bit industrial but I like it.
