A Lamp to Watch Over You

A Lamp to Watch Over You

I love my apartment, but there are still two things that drive me up a wall on a daily basis… the hideous smoke alarms and security system. Total vibe killers! You can’t live with ‘em, and you can’t live without ‘em. Until now… the Drop lamp might just look like beautiful blown glass, but within its decorative shell are technologies to alert the user to a number of home situations including fire, smoke and break-ins! They connect via WiFi, are always hardwired and totally disguised so you can rest assure your place is being watched over all without ugly ceiling fixtures.

Leafless, Not Lifeless Lighting

Leafless, Not Lifeless Lighting

The Afillia collection earns its namesake from the world of botany. In terms of plants it means leafless, but not lifeless. A blend of hand-crafted woodwork and sintered 3D printing results in an intricate diffuser with delicate, lace-like patterns and geometric pinholes. Free to waver at will, the light casts fleeting shadows then beams into unexpected focus forming compact halos.

It's what's inside that counts.

It’s what’s inside that counts.

At first glance, Misko looks like your average bedside drawer table… minimal and well-balanced. But, flip the switch and that’s when you’ll fall in love! An internal LED shines bright from within, illuminating the translucent top and peeking through the handle space. Combining these two functions keeps your bedroom space uncluttered but just as bright. DO WANT!

Light and Listen

Light and Listen

The Cantador lamp brings light and sound together like never before. The minimal pendant uses hidden LEDs against a specialized film and  acid finish glass to create a diffused, multidirectional light that even illuminates upwards. An integrated sound transducer produces subtle vibrations in the glass that fall in rhythm with whatever music is playing. Together, these features create the perfect atmospheric lamp.
