  • Are lamps, with exposed light bulbs and facing down on the user, dangersome?
  • Are lamps, with blistering light bulbs exposed and facing down on the user, dangersome?
  • IKEA discontinued this NOVEMBER lamp in 2007, but I still use it. IKEA confirmed that they did not intend or design any cover or share with this lamp, and the light bulb is supposed to be exposed. But isn't this parlous?
  • As you can see below, it uses a bizarrely shaped light bulb that heats up WAY TOO MUCH! It warms me up too!
  • What if the sizzling hot light bulb loosens, falls onto the person sitting or lying under the light, and scorches and maims the victim?

  • What if the sizzling light bulb loosens over time, falls onto the person sitting or lying under the light, and scorches and maims the victim?
