Liquid lamps - tilt switches using Electric Paint

For the 2012 Milan Furniture Fair, Patrick Stevenson-Keating put together some incredible lamps using Electric Paint suspended in oil. The lamps work by tilting them in such a way that the blob of Electric Paint will make contact between the two electrodes extending from the bulb. To turn the bulb off, you just rotate or tilt the lamps until the paint is no longer making contact. We’ve had a chance to see these pieces in person and they are absolutely beautiful. We’re also really excited to see someone use the paint in a liquid state! Check out more of Patrick’s work here
