The 12 Modern Lamps of Christmas 2012- Day 11

Welcome, all you modern design lovers and last minute shoppers. Whichever you may be, you’ve come to the right place. Our 12 Modern Lamps of Christmas is the ideal compilation of gorgeous, giftable lamps. If you haven’t had a chance to see all the lamps featured in this year’s list so far, I recommend you start from the beginning.

From there, take your time to browse and work your way back to today and the 11th Modern Lamp of Christmas:

#11- Urbanjet Fan by Fanimation



That’s right. Our 11th modern lamp is not a lamp. But when this guy zoomed onto my radar, I simply couldn’t resist including it. This makes the Urbanjet Fan quite literally the coolest gift on this year’s list.

Its retro design was inspired by vintage cars, specifically a ’57 Chevy. This you can see in the rounded “chassis” of the base and glossy paint job. And then there’s all of those fun chromed details: the fin-like handle, the accents on the fan’s cage/grill and the hood ornament detail around the rotary switch.

Urbanjet is also just about as maneuverable as a car. It tilts up and down, can oscillate from side to side and is adjustable between 3 speeds (all of which move a pretty significant amount of air).

At just over a foot tall, this pretty, speedy fan is the epitome of giftable. For the lover of cars or all things retro, you’ll want to hurry and grab one soon, ’cause these things are going fast. Vroom vroom!
