This tasty lamp shade was created by designer Alexander Lervik, it’s a chocolate pyramid over an incandescent light bulb. When you turn on the light he chocolate slowly melts and eventually you are left with a puddle of tasty chocolate goo to dip fruit, marshmallows, fingers or other body parts in.
I’m not entirely sure how it keeps the chocolate warm and melted once its in. The bowl, but I’m sure it has a way of doing that.
The Poetry of Light chocolate lamp, unlike other lamps, is completely dark when you first turn it on, mimicking light spreading along the horizon at sunrise. The heat from the lamp causes the chocolate to begin melting, and it takes several minutes for the first rays of light to penetrate. Holes soon form and as the light grows the chocolate melts. The material and structure of the lamp are the result of pure curiosity. Alexander Lervik wanted to explore the possibility of creating a contrast to light, i.e. dark. The shape of the lamp has been devised based on extensive testing involving the melting process.
