Bright Slide

Bright Slide

The super modern-looking Slide Lamp is constructed from a single piece of machine-hallowed hardwood mounted on a cast aluminum base. The unorthodox construction also makes for very unique functionality- simply raise or lower the intuitive side lever to turn it on or off, or adjust the brightness!

Urban Camping

Urban Camping

I love a design that takes inspiration from a familiar fragment to stimulate the viewer’s memory and imagination. Lamp Fire is one of these creative concepts and is reminiscent of the campfires that many of us experienced as children. It’s a clever way of enjoying campfire conversations from the comfort of home!

Untamed Lighting

Untamed Lighting

The unique Hed Lyte (love the name!) concept by Creative Session will bring soft light and a touch of wildness to any space! The design puts a modern, geometric, sculptural twist on the popular taxidermy animal head, utilizing the elephant model’s tusks and the deer model’s antlers as lighting accents. Sure to be a conversation starter!

Primping Up the Lamps

Primping Up the Lamps

Unless you live in a vibrant city like Kula Lumpur, where you have such ornate streetlamps, chances are that you are stuck with drab energy draining streetlamps. Parasite is a Photovoltaic Lamp that parasitically hooks onto existing lamps and scaffoldings, primping the old. The PV cell system is modeled on the system designed by Spectrolab.

Adorably Wild Lighting

Adorably Wild Lighting

Inspired by the wildlife of the African savannah, the GIFU lamp series is as lovable as it is super-functional as a space saving design. Each lamp arrives flat-packed, but unfold it to reveal an adorable animalian form. The clever design makes the most of each component with the wiring resembling a tail and the bulb resembling a trunk!

Illuminated Wired Mess

Illuminated Wired Mess

Chaos theory rules as I try and come to grips with the traditional connotations of the After Image Floor Lamp. Modelled on the mesmerizing ember effects of a fire going out in the dead of the night, red wires in an organized chaotic fashion, wrap around the modular frame of this lamp. To quote Monocomplex, the design was inspired from the scene of mouse fire play; ‘Jui-bool-no-ri , which is one of Korea’s traditional customs. If you ask me, it’s a whole lot of wires and bulbs in a symbiotic relationship!

We’re constantly trying to hide wires, cables and plugs, but this modular system of lighting by zwei21 really owns its construction. It features attractive, colorful, textile cables, plugs, lampshades and joints that can be combined and placed in a variety of combinations to suit the user’s taste and need. Up to 3 cables can be connected to each joint for additional light. It’s a great solution for reading, working or subtle accent lighting.

Reduced to Beautiful

Reduced to Beautiful

Ask any designer and they’ll tell you the same thing- a winning balance of functional and aesthetic simplicity is harder to achieve than you might think. Take a few notes from the team at Bureau Puree because they’ve hit the nail on the head with this design: the Cone Lamp. It’s a gleaming example of simplicity and reduced design with a characteristic form.
