Apparently, cassettes are not dead; they're alive and well, albeit silent, in Cassette Tape Lamps ($37-134). This "tribute to ... a symbol of a generation" is a strikingly beautiful reinvention of tapes. These recycled rectangular clusters make atmospheric shine as table-top cubes, hanging pendants, or floor lamps. Control the look by choosing transparent cassettes for a bright light, or colored tapes for a more subdued, varied illumination. Perfect lighting for a mix-tape exchange party.
