It's not milk, but it might quench your design thirst!

With his recent lighting design, Belarusian designer Constantin Bolimond explores how packaging can be applied to lamps, and in the process, draws a parallel between two seemingly incongruous elements. His lamp appropriates the simple, comforting shape of a milk bottle as its own. For some, this minimal interpretation of a familiar object comes with its fair share of nostalgic attachment, evoking something lost and rediscovered.

Or perhaps we’re over-analyzing.

The light is contained in a translucent white cylinder that fades into a simple black outline, tracing the “bottle’s” neck. A wooden cap tops the design, and when twisted, the light turns on. By borrowing an intuitive action such as opening a bottle, users are encouraged to interact with the object. To top it all off, the design also entirely portable and can be picked up by the bottom or by its tiny leather strap.
