Wow, awesome pipe lamps! Sean @ Make: Online writes:

These “Kozo” handmade iron-pipe lamps from Israeli group Demo Design Clinic first appeared on my radar back in early 2009 when Boing Boing blogged about their original model, the kozo1, pictured top left. They were a runaway success, and Kozo has since added many more models. They’ve got a clever trick for building the switch into a faucet handle to match the spot-on DIY aesthetics of the lamp itself. Gareth blogged a pretty sweet remake, minus the fancy switch, by a reader named Boris shortly thereafter.

    I’ve wanted to make this kind of lamp for months. The Smith (a restaurant in NYC/East Village) has lamps made of plumbing. They kind of look like double-headed reading lamps.
