Nature Transformed

Nature Transformed

Gotta love Floris Wubben’s latest lamp design… Stripped! Each lamp is constructed using just one branch – pieces are split to form the legs and main extension while bark removed from the branch is peeled to create the shade. The design aims to maintain the natural form of the tree branch as much as possible while the process ensures that no two lamps are exactly alike!

Innovation in Surgical Illumination

Innovation in Surgical Illumination

The APOLLO concept is a modular lighting system that provides flexibility in operating room illumination through the use of laser technology. Using laser light increases luminous efficiency from 170 lumen/watt opposed to LEDs with 100 lumen/watt and allows for more compact dimensions. Built-in sensors adapt to every situation by changing the direction of light and adjusting brightness autonomously as surgeons move around, allowing them to focus on the task at hand without interruption.

Screwless Glueless Wonder

Screwless Glueless Wonder

Inspired by the painter’s easel, this bare-bones task lamp is composed of little more than a mirrored, Y-shaped frame supporting a socket, bulb and shade. With the shade held in place by the bulb and on/off functionality built into the cord, the design doesn’t require adhesives or screws to keep everything in place. A perfect minimal accent to your desktop!

Raw But Refined Lighting

Raw But Refined Lighting

Gotta love the modern Plank light fixture by Northern Lighting of Norway. The design transforms the ordinary wood plank into a thin, long and simplistic pendant that produces a directed glow that appears generated from the center. In light poplar or darker Southern yellow pine, it’s the perfect pendant for bringing a little rustic to modern spaces or modern to rustic spaces!

Hand-spun Lighting

Hand-spun Lighting

Vim & Vigor’s SF lamp series pays homage to the vanishing art of hand spinning metal. Each of the 3 shades are spun before a signature “key hole” is punched in the side. This gap creates a visual perplexity that makes the otherwise symmetrical design appear to change depending on the viewing angle.

Solar Butterfly

The beautiful Light Bird looks enchanting in full bloom, absorbing the solar goodness from the sun. Storing the power for a rainy day – meaning times when there is an electric outage, the lamp blooms to full LED force giving you illumination during dark times. Love the way you can attach to any exterior wall surface and dot it along the walls. Energetic and alluring!

Hypnotized by Light

Hypnotized by Light

Inspired by the symmetries of the dahlia blossom, the Hypnotic lamp not only provides an inviting glow, but its unique patterns also make it a captivating wall accessory. The geometry of the flower has been transformed into a hexagonal grid transferred on a plane, deforming the pattern to create a three dimensional impression that changes with the viewers perception.

Look no further! Philou le Caribou is a clever, cruelty-free cardboard trophy deer head with the perfect touch of kitsch for the home or office! It’s a fun piece of decor during the day, but nighttime is when it really shines. A light at the nose produces a large, looming shadow to create a visual oddity that’s sure to be a conversation starter. DIY, flat-pack ready, lightweight, easy to ship, and even easier to put together!

Something to Howl About

Something to Howl About

Inspired by our unique human obsession with the moon, this lamp design brings the natural occurrence of the moon’s ever-changing cycle into the comfort of home. The Moon lamp’s sliding cover can be adjusted to reveal more or less light depending on need. The full spectrum, from a sliver of a crescent to a full moon, is available to always achieve the perfect glow.

Personalized Solar Flare

Personalized Solar Flare

The Solar Loop is a lamp that harnesses solar energy to work. The solar cells are integrated in a very fashionable way, giving the lamp a very kitsch feel. I love the way you can casually hang multiple Loops on a tree, giving them a very ethereal vibe. I reckon a better option than LEDs, especially they will work even through power failures.

Math Made Pretty

Math Made Pretty

If the shape looks familiar (maybe even scary!), it’s because the Paraboloid Lamp takes the striking shape of the hyperbolic geometric surface you probably saw in your algebra classes. A single globe is nestled in the center of a saddle-like grid of skew lines, creating a diffused glow that moves with the elegant curvature of the structure and peeks through the rhomboidal spaces. The version pictured here teeters on a solid base but flipped it might make an interesting pendant centerpiece.

Smart Streetlight

Smart Streetlight

Smart design meets urban light in this minimal LED street lamp design by Igor Solovyov. The steel and aluminum-cast lamp reaches upward with just a slight curve at the top; enough to cast a bright light to the sidewalk without overly-obstructing the view of the sky above. A cluster of large and small multidirectional LEDs ensure light is dispersed as efficiently as possible to the area below.

Go Nutty for this Lamp

Go Nutty for this Lamp

The Acorn by Vasiliy Butenko transforms an ordinary cotton rope into an attractive, simple and inexpensive pendant lamp. The construction process is quick and easy an only requires the rope, a bottle and a bonding agent. The rope is wound around the bottle creating layers that don’t require an internal frame. Bright LEDs provide concentrated light that won’t burn the cotton. In a number of dark colors, it’s both soft and masculine.
