Almost five years have passed since New York-based design firm Rux Design unveiled their revolutionary StickBulb lighting system , which was inspired by destroyed buildings. Now, the innovative designers are back with a new, bolder LED lamp called Boom that’s made out of reclaimed Redwood from dismantled NYC water tanks. Rux’s new Boom lamps were officially unveiled this week at the Milan Furniture Fair . The series follows up on the designer’s quest to repurpose materials from architectural destruction. Boom is made of reclaimed wood taken from dismantled NYC water tanks. Years of exposure to the harsh NYC climate on one side and water on the other has given the wood a rich, unique coloring.

The lighted sticks shoot out at different lengths and emit light from different directions, creating a sense of “exploding light.” According to Stickbulb Co-Founder and RUX Founder Russell Greenberg, the team’s lighting systems take a revolutionary approach to green design : “Our fixtures are literally born from the destruction of architecture. We celebrate this energy and history in the form and function of our designs.” Boom debuted in a temporary exhibit at Archiproducts Milano on April 4th during Milan Design Week . + Stickbulb + Rux Design

Three Wise Men are a group of lovely wooden lamps handcrafted into different sizes and shapes. Designed by Hong-Kong-born, UK-based Samuel Chan for his own brand Channel , they give off a warm and focused shine thanks to the use of an E27 LED bulb. The lamps were crafted from solid American white oak and American black walnut and given a slender bottle-like top. The series takes its name from the group of men who (according to the Bible) visited Jesus when he was born—we however spotted them hanging at this year’s  Milan Design Week. + Channel Photos by Silvia Perfetti for Inhabitat and Channels Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: “energy efficiency” , American black walnut , American white oak , Channel , green lighting , handmade , lamps , Milan Design Week 2013 , Milan Furniture Fair , Samuel Chan , Wood , wooden lamps
