We can’t believe it’s not marmalade! What looks like a delicious jar of jam is actually a curious little light designed by Semiki Studio. The cleverly-named Marmeled is simple lighting option that sets a bright LED within a jar full of stained gel. Playing on the transparency and air bubbles of the colored gel, the resulting effect is a bright burst of refracted light able to provide some ambient illumination to any dark room.
The lamp is the product of Semiki Studio’s ongoing experiments with new materials and user experience. If you look carefully at the design, there is no switch – not even a twist! All you have to do to activate the Marmeled is flip the jar upside down and viola! Although the product is labeled with some startling words of caution: The product is not edible. Do not swallow. In case of ingestion contact a doctor immediately; if you’re one who’s good at following directions, then you’ll have nothing to fear. This little lamp could be the perfect way to fill those empty shelves with something that’s both a bit green and a bit funky.
