Hot Diggety Dog!

Hot Diggety Dog!

You can’t teach an old dog new tricks. So what do you do? Design a new dog! In comes the LUMINOSE Lamp, created by Márton and Elizabeth. Modeled to adopt a pooch’s personality, the lamp literally brings a smile to my face with the way it looks and stands (let’s not forget the adjustable tail)! There’s a special term I have for times like this…aDOGable!

Honey I printed a lamp

Honey I printed a lamp

2015 is the year of the 3D printer. You’ll pretty much be able to print anything soon. But what about the poor little ink printer? Everybody just takes it for granted. The guys at YOY decided to give our little forgotten friend some street cred. Here’s the ultra simple Poster Lamp. Printed on a simple sheet of paper, just about anybody can put one together. And let’s not deny, it looks just about as classy as Champagne and Caviar!

Putting the Light in Lightweight

Putting the Light in Lightweight

It’s been a while since I’ve seen an iconic/memorable lamp design after the Pixar logo, Luxo Jr. Designers at Gagan Design in Canada have been working on a lighting design that is built out of aerospace parts. The Maverick lamp is as beautiful as it’s sleek. Resting on two wooden legs, the Copper tube houses a strip of LEDs in a way that makes the design ultra compact and awe-inspiring. And it’s all made out of aviation parts. The cherry on the cake is, Gagan in Hindi means “sky”. What a lovely coincidence!

In Light of Eternity

In Light of Eternity

A winner of the Franz Award for Porcelain Design, the Sphere pendant find inspiration for this year’s “eternity” theme in the visual symbol. Now in its three dimensional form, the two overlapping ellipses meet at the center where there is a focused, direct beam light. On either side are horizontal extensions with embedded LEDs that cast a softer ambient light. With filigree, complex shapes, the design is also an example of porcelains many applications, even for intricate details.

The Lightest Lights

The Lightest Lights

The Airy Lamp Series is so named for its barely-there materials and faint cut-out form that together make it no more than a subtle silhouette during the day and soft, diffused glow at night. The design kit utilizes delicate Japanese rice paper made durable and strong with lamination. A simple slot-in assembly of the five and six panel designs means each to be shipped flat-pack and the finely cut perforated pattern in each panel allows the user to extrude each panel into their desired form.

The Chimney Effect

The Chimney Effect

The Chimney Lighting is a warm and ambient light that enhances its beauty with the help of Lycra. Inspired by the chimney and its color and soft feeling, the wooden handle features the form of a simplified chimney. The hole on the Handle has its reasons, for example it can be hung on a hook or at the end of the string from the ceiling. A leather strap on back face of lighting adds more analogue feeling into it. A neat style to integrate in a roomy space!

An Interior Invasion of Light

An Interior Invasion of Light

In designer Soo Jung Park’s many travels, she occasionally felt as though natives in these foreign lands looked at her like an “alien” though she was only there to help improve the their environments. Inspired by this experience, her Invaders series of table and floor lamps reflect a retro, UFO or space satellite-like aesthetic. In multiple shapes and sizes, there’s one to invade every part of your home!

Abstract Anatomy-Inspired Lighting

Abstract Anatomy-Inspired Lighting

Appropriately called the Bionic Floor Light, this unique home lamp solution takes inspiration from our very own human anatomy. Its limb-like curves are a subtle allusion to the shape of arms and legs while a voronoi style structure (made of Dupont corian) mimics muscular fibers in an abstract way. The resulting aesthetic is both organic and effective as it creates soft, indirect illumination with patterned shadows.
