Lamptastic!

We’ve seen loads of lighting solutions through the years. Some quirky, some functional, some absolutely endearing. We just needed something to celebrate the infinite possibilities of what we can do with light. The Infinity Lamp is just that. Minimal yet heavy on the symbolism, the lamp has a classic and timeless design, creating a beautiful halo of light wherever you put it.

Extinction-inspired Lighting

Extinction-inspired Lighting

Inspired by ancient marine dinosaur fossils called Ammonites, the Amonita desk lamp is first sculptural decor and second a source of soft illumination. The metal spiral with built-in LED strips creates a unique lighting effect of movement. In two sizes and 3 finishes of yellow, zinc or white, they’re as mesmerizing in the dark as they are in daylight.

Anchor of Light

Anchor of Light

Called “Anchor-1″ for its shape, this minimalistic desk lamp utilizes a 3-facet design to adjust the angle of inclination and light direction. The long LED strip is held upright with a system of removable counterbalancing weights that also make the design an interactive lighting object that the user can have fun adjusting. Composed of aluminum, inlaid plywood and steel parts, it’s as efficient to produce as it is to run!

Ripples of Light

Ripples of Light

An expansion of Richard Clarkson Studio’s nature-inspired designs, the Rain Lamp circulates actual water to create a stunning, shimmering ripple effect. To achieve this, the pendant utilizes a hidden peristaltic pump and LED bulb. As drops fall, they disturb the larger pool to create a mesmerizing and soothing pattern of shapes and shadows. Watch it in action after the jump and own it here!

Not for Arachnophobes

Not for Arachnophobes

Named the Spider Lamp for the 8 “legs” that form its structure, this arachnid-inspired design can be used as pendant or table lamp depending on the user’s preference. Its simplistic construction of plywood held together with box joints makes it easy to assemble, store and ship. A single screw, socket and braided textile cord of the users choosing are all that’s required to complete this spider-like accent light.

A Puzzling Lamp

A Puzzling Lamp

A little more “crafty” than the far-out modern designs we usually feature, this cleverly designed desk lamp is a totally fun build-it-yourself project! Made almost entirely of polywood, its assembled like a 3D puzzle before integrating the lighting unit itself. No screws, glues or nails, simply snap it together! Of course, you can deconstruct it just as easily for moving or storage.

Leaking Light

Leaking Light

Inspired by the natural beauty of crepuscular parallel rays of sunlight that stream through gaps in the clouds, the Leaky lighting project aims to recreate this dramatic effect indoors. It works by utilizing a felt screen over a seemingly random, cloud-like shape to diffuse the glow, concentrating light only where the user desires. To adjust the direction, simply revel sections of the light unit by uncovering the felt.

A Slice of Light

A Slice of Light

This stylish, half-slice shaped sconce uses a clever combination of lines and curves to create the visual illusion that it’s unattached and floating. Not only for looks, the unique placement of the 3D shape effectively illuminates the space with a variety of vertical positions easily defined by the user. Up, down, just till it around to highlight or shadow the area to your liking!

Open to Light

Open to Light

As a tribute to books (remember those?), the SIVU table lamp utilizes an intuitive folding action to activate and deactivate its light source. However unconventional, the design is practical and that it takes up little space in its closed form and is highly adaptable for casting diffused light in one or more desired directions simply by adjusting its width. Crafted from solid walnut, leather and plexiglass, it’s as dapper as it is durable making it a perfect desk top accessory.
