Cassette tape lamp lights up your room with a warm analog glow

Long before the iPod or portable CD players, most of us listened to our favorite tunes on analog cassettes. Now you can relive the age of the cassette with this stylish lamp, made using one hundred see-through analog tapes.

Created by a San Francisco based design team called Transparent House, the Tape Lamp actually uses the smaller size Micro-Cassettes rather than the standard Music Cassettes we used back in the day, but the effect remains pretty much the same.

One of the great things about cassettes was their low cost, but at $1,200 a piece, it seems like that part of the cassette culture didn't quite make it to the Tape Lamp.
