The new Shadow Lamps are yet another fascinating innovation from Luxa. The laminated paper lampshades have been double-printed to have shadowy hidden images on the inside which only appear when the lamp is turned on, and this changes the lamp from a pleasantly decorated shade into something rather more interesting when lit.
The lamps can be mains operated using the supplied USB cable (requiring a mains USB socket or plug) or they can be connected to a computer, laptop or power bank battery. They also have a battery option to use 3 x 'AA' batteries via the battery compartment in the base.
There are three lighting mode options — continuous, pulsing glow or a gentle tea light flicker. These can be scrolled through by pressing the touch-sensitive switch on the front of the lamp.
The one exception to the double-printing in the Shadow Lamp range is the 'Wild Meadow' design - the highlight of this lamp is the laser-cut butterflies whose wings can be pressed out just a little to catch the light and make them look as though the sun is glinting off their wings.
