Young Swedish designer Johan Lindsten has created the inventive Meltdown lamp for Italian interiors firm Cappellini. Think of it as a bulb with in a bulb. The colorful glass forms hold a smaller bulb, which sits at the base with the suggestion that it is melting through. Linsten was inspired by the disastrous nuclear accident in Fukushima.

Cappellini will debut the Meltdown lamp at IMM Cologne and in Paris at Maison & Object in January 2013.
