“Blow Me Up” Lighting Fixture

Blow Me Up Light Created by Ingo Maurer and Theo Möller

The Blow Me Up lamp by Ingo Maurer  is an innovative LED lighting fixture that arrives rolled up in a can.  Who would have thought?

Easy To Use

Once it is blown up you can lean it against the wall or fastened it to the ceiling or wall with hooks or cords. They are easier to transport than fluorescent bulbs and there’s no danger of falling glass shards if bumped.  Also, there’s no drilling required.  Yes, it’s that easy.

Blow Me Up is a lamp that provides a variety of options.  Perfect for those who embrace mobility. There is a integrated sensor switch on one side of the LED strip, which radiates the reflective side of the tube, thus scattering indirect light in the room.

Not A Laser Sword

“With a suitable adapter Blow Me Up can also be connected to the 12 volts supply of a camping van.  The plastic hose, however, should be treated more carefully than camping equipment because above all it is neither a swimming noodle nor a laser sword.? -Ingo Maurer & Team

So there you have it, an LED lighting fixture that is easy to assemble, is mobile, and easy to clean.  The fantastic lighting it provides is great too.  Get yours today here.

Our 17th Anniversary Celebration

Pegasus Lighting 17th anniversary celebrationMay 2016 marks Pegasus Lighting’s 17th year online. Like any developing 17-year-old, we have spent our “teenage years” testing the waters, figuring out who we are as a company and determining where we will make our future.

But the truth is, we are also the result of good “parenting.” Pegasus Lighting has a solid foundation guided by the principles set in place by our founder, Dr. Thomas E. Farin years ago:

  • Treat everyone fairly and with respect.
  • Work smarter.
  • Communicate clearly and thoroughly.
  • Encourage innovation.
  • Have some fun.

These principles continue to guide us as we enter our 18th year. (more…)

Pegasus loves biodegradable packing peanuts

Earth-Friendly Packing Peanuts Invite Play

After you’ve been around something for a while, you start to take it for granted.

Things like dissolvable cornstarch packing peanuts.

It took one imaginative 11-year-old boy and an email from a happy customer to remind us just how nifty these little earth-friendly peanuts are.

“BE WARNED! The peanuts you’re about to encounter may be a little annoying, but they’re cooler than you think.”

If you’ve received a shipment from Pegasus Lighting in the past few years, your box most likely had a sticker on it with those words. Inside the box is a note that shares the reasons behind our choice to use biodegradable cornstarch packing peanuts, not the least of which is because they are really fun to play with.

Inside every Pegasus Lighting box is a notecard that explains why we use biodegradable packaging peanuts
Who uses packing peanuts anymore? We do!

As cool as they are, after a few years of using them every single day, the novelty started to wear off.

Then we received this…

5 most popular blog posts of 2014

As a company, providing a positive learning experience has always been one of our main goals. Creating valuable, readable blog posts is a big deal to us, and we spend a lot of time looking back at what we’ve written to find out what worked, and what didn’t.

As we look back at 2014, one thing remains clear. Our readers continue to look to us for expert advice on things like “What are the advantages of Low Voltage Lighting?” and “How do you install LED Step Lighting?” The ever-popular “How to Layout Recessed Lighting in 4 Easy Steps” still reigns as our top blog post of all-time.

But we also like to have a little fun at Pegasus Lighting. In fact, it’s one of our guiding principles. Doing photo round-ups and design series gives us a chance to step back from the technical aspects of lighting and enjoy the remarkable things light can do. It was encouraging to see that our readers enjoy it too.  (more…)

December 1999 Pop Culture Flashback

Pop Culture Flashback! December 1999

December 1999 Pop Culture Flashback

This week we’re wrapping up our 15 Year Celebration with our final 1999 Pop Culture Flashback. We’ve had such a great time looking back to the launch of Pegasus Lighting 15 years ago, and hope you’ve enjoyed coming along for the ride.

In December of 1999 all eyes were on Y2K. The millennium was nearing its end and amidst the reassurances of major governments and corporations, many were still braced for a digital meltdown. But even the threat of world-ending disasters couldn’t stop the 1999 Billboard awards.

1. Back Street Boys steal the show

The Back Street Boys take home 6 awards at the 1999 Billboard Music Awards, including Artist of the Year and Album of the Year. Tween-age girls across the globe squealed with joy each time this boy band took the stage.
