If you’re a bicycle lover or design enthusiast, you’ll want to check out Bike me home, a new lamp design from Industrial Kid. Inspired by the feeling of being free on a bicycle, this new contemporary lighting fixture gives more design power to the customer.

Of the variety of customizable features available on the up-cycled light, the switches are some of the most interesting. Each brake lever functions as an on or off switch respectively, incorporating mechanical motion into the production of light.

“In the short term, we aim to offer our customers different shapes such as road bike bars and brake levers or vintage style and develop the customizer platform where people can combine every style with every colour. Longer term, we want to create a wider range of products such as pendant lamps or wall lamps. It is a fusion of our lamp design concept with people’s own ideas to create something entirely new. This is our definition of product design,” says product designer Peter Belso.

If you aren’t feeling too artsy at the moment and want to leave the design up to a professional, there are also some preset designs created to match the color schemes of what could be your favorite food.

Peter Belso is a Hungarian designer and created the lamp as something that would help his daughter enjoy sitting at her desk to do homework. People loved his design and he founded the company Industrial Kid in 2015 to help bring the unique lighting fixture to anywhere in the world!
