Labware: lighting old school style

While I was never too brilliant at school science lessons, there's definitely some chemistry going on between me and the Labware Lighting collection.

Truth be told, I was always a bit of a scaredy cat in the lab - too afraid to pick up a flask lest I spilt toxic substances all over myself or to go near a Bunsen burner in case my hair caught fire. By the time we were able to choose 'options', I couldn't wait to wave bye bye to biology, physics and the like.

Perhaps that's why these scientifically-inspired lights fill me with such awe. While I don't know the exact names of all that experimental equipment or indeed what it should be used for, I do know these lights look pretty cool. The lamps are shaped like oversized flasks, made from sturdy opal white glass with cork stoppers to complete the effect. Best of all, you don't need to use tongs, pipettes, safety specs or anything else to use them. You can just switch them on. Now that's my idea of scientific progress.

Want to experiment with your lighting? These lamps cost £275 each from Graham and Green.
