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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

The latest in a trend of garden & light combinations, the Aura lamp is an experiment in interactive objects that combines nature, water & light in a unique design that strengthens the bond between object & user by changing color with a simple touch of the plant’s leaves. The system uses an aluminum base with LED RGB modules that shine through the glass container. By touching the plant the user grounds the system & activates color changes, power & light intensity.

Unlike most desk lamp designs with shades that open in the direction of the light, the Flower Barb features a combination of sleek plates that extend backward from the apex. At the center point is a focused LED that’s perfect for working under. The result is a sort of floral aesthetic with a surprising, directional light; however, I’d love to see the 4 plates able to be adjusted in the opposite direction so the user can switch between ambient glow and focused light.

Though it’s quite simple, the Elagone lamp is remarkably versatile. An ultra-thin LED strip lines the inner core, diffusing the bright light into a warm, subtle glow that’s reflected off its solid oak surface. The design can be positioned upright or horizontal and turned to achieve the desired effect. It’s inconspicuous, organic aesthetic make it a functional accessory to any desktop.
