1926 Imperial “The good companion” typewriter lamp

Today we are going to review a “Typewriter Light” that was created by Absynthe Designs.It was created usingĀ  a 1926 Imperial “The good companion” typewriter:Imperial Good Companion

As you can see, its quite a nice looking typewriter – before any work has even begun!

The next stage is to add all the decorations. This was done using recycled parts from a fridge, gas valves, antique pocket watch parts, and then the crowning piece – a miniature gramophone!

The lovely wooden platform it sits on, is made from recycled old furniture.

The lights are Edison bulbs. Teflon coated concealed wiring, Cloth coveredĀ  external wire.

Although this piece is not for sale – we thought you would appreciate it. If you like this kind of piece, or would like to commission something yourself – please check out his site: http://absynthedesign.com/

Computer mouse, by Daniel Pan


After completing my custom keyboard, I was constantly annoyed with seeing my ugly plastic mouse sitting next to it, so I knew a new project was inevitable. I decided to make a custom matching mouse! At first I felt this project was beyond my abilities, since I had to make actual moving and working parts, but after hours of staring at a dissembled mouse and my boxes and jars of random found objects, I developed a plan of attack. The mouse I started with was a generic 5 button mouse with scroll wheel. The two main left/right buttons were the largest obstacles for I couldnt find anything that would both look and function well. My first though was to use the two sides of a bottom jawbone of some rodent I had lying around, but they ended up being too small and fragile for constant use. I then decided I will just carve some pieces out of wood. After this, I made a mount using brass tubing and brass I-beam shaped pieces. To match the keyboard, I decided to add vintage typewriter keys to each of the finger points on the main 4 buttons of this mouse. I used Alchemy symbols to replace the original letters in the keys. These symbols may or may not have been chosen for a specific significance in this project.
