If IKEA Made Geeky Furniture Part 9: Back To The Future

Doc Brown Helmet BTTF

Simply put this ceiling lamp looks like the helmet worn by Doc Brown the first Back to the Future. It is tethered by that “suction cup” that the Doc affixed to Marty McFly’s head.

Besides the main bulb, there would be LED lights throughout this light fixture, making it look like a fancypants chandelier.

If IKEA Made Geeky Furniture Part 8: Portal

Portal Lights Mirrors Lamps

If IKEA Made Geeky Furniture is a series of concept designs for geeks by a geek. These aren’t actual items for sale.

Portal Lights Mirrors Lamps

I made a few more items: A Portal ‘incinerator’ waste basket, and a companion cube dresser (complete with Portal mirror) – but they both looked really silly. They got the axe.

If IKEA Made Geeky Furniture Part 7: Nintendo Bedroom

A few fun items for the bedroom: a duvet cover in the style of a Game Boy, a pillow case Game Boy cartridge, a lamp which looks like one that would attach to a Game Boy, and lastly a GameCube bedside table.

If IKEA Made Geeky Furniture Part 6: Superman

Fortress of Solitude Desk

This desk is based on Superman’s Fortress of Solitude. It features glass sections in the shape of the Superman diamond logo. The clincher is a glass stationary holder that resembles the crystal module. A corner configuration is shown, but a standard desk could also be made with this idea.

If IKEA Made Geeky Furniture Part 5: Tetris

Tetris Lamp 2010 Dave Delisle

If IKEA Made Geeky Furniture is a series of design concepts made for geeks by a geek. These are not actual products for sale.

This one is pretty self-explanatory: a lamp based on Tetris. The light would come from a “Tetris”, the clearing of four levels at once. I felt a 4-sided lamp would look good, and could use an old-fashioned bulb inside.

If IKEA Made Geeky Furniture Part 4: Nintendo

Nintendo futon couch design by Dave Delisle

Here is a matching couch and chair that looks like the Nintendo DS and Game Boy Advance (the clamshell version). These would be decorated with cartridge pillows. Game screens can be accomplished by putting screenshots on blankets and draping the blankets on top.
