We came across this interesting little lighting concept recently on Design Spotter. It is "the system of lamps, inspired by dumbbell, realised in polypropylene or soft touch plastic." This Dumbbell lamp is designed by Samal design France.

So what do we think about these dumbbell lamps? Since it's still a lighting concept and there are not much information about how these things work, yet. However, it does seem like a good idea if we can take each dumbbell as a flash light (assuming these are battery operated) and then hook up a bunch together to really light up a space.

Seems like it would be a fantastic idea if as we hook these dumbbell lamps on the chains, they also start charging the batteries. Could this really be a great lighting product? I guess we'll have to wait and see.
