Dutch design firm V3RS starts its premier series of lighting with this modern take on the tube light, the UTL floor lamp. Two stainless steel rods rise from the floor, connected by a U-shaped bulb at the ends. Its slim silhouette makes it perfect for those smaller, in-between spots in the home.
“ledwork” is a series of highly tangible, autonomous lights that respond to touch and movement. Connected together with magnets, they form a swarm of light in which new patterns emerge as the lights talk to each other and work in an ever-changing colorful harmony. This invites the user to observe, explore and construct new physical configurations while deepening the connection between object and user.
Introducing, Spot On- a pocket lamp as strong as automobile headlights and almost as small as a smartphone… but also stylish enough to bring indoors as a modern home lighting accent. Ingeniously simple, yet highly effective, the design transforms the light beam from the flashlight into a cone-shaped lampshade and therefore a fitment with a stylish shape. It’s a breath of fresh air in the living rooms of style-conscious sportspeople!

Now you see it… now you don’t. This clever lamp is my latest obsession! Simply called LIGHT, it brings new meaning to “throwin’ shade.” Flip it on and light shines through a finely cut hole to create the illusion of a classic lamp shade shape against your wall. Minimal with a touch of humor, it’s attractive, interesting and a total conversation starter!
The Brighter Minds series consists of a hanging lamp reminiscent of a molecule and a matching floor lamp. Teardrop shapes meet omnidirectional globe lights to achieve the golden ratio for both natural aesthetic appeal and to maximize material in the simple production process. While they may seem complex in form, their simple, organic, streamlined shape has a stunning sculptural impact on the visual environment.

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.

Toss out your industrial light dimmer for something a little more tech-y and fun like the Aurea! This contemporary dimmer users touch-screen technology and intuitive controls to give users the flexibility to customize their lighting. Use a single touch for on/off or trace a finger over the spiral to dim on 1 of 6 strengths. Its size and styling aren’t for everyone, but look no further if you’re simply in the mood for something entirely different!
Designer: Eduardo Rincon-Gallardo Martinez
The Light Screen tabletop lamp combines modern style and tech to illuminate your workspace. Transparent acrylic is used to disperse light when you need full illumination while focused fiber optics direct a more intense spotlight where you need it. On or off, its futuristic sculptural form will compliment any ultramodern workspace.

The Drop street lamp is an innovative and iconic design that recalls the organic shape of a water drop. Its signature shape is not only easy on the eyes, but naturally withstanding against the elements. Produced from 100% recyclable anodized aluminum, it can be custom colored to compliment any city’s streets.
Designer: Emo Design
This creative floor lamp takes the shape of a playful pooch for tail-wagging fun and instant illumination! Composed of a red cloth covered cord that looks like a leash and LEDs inside laser-cut plexiglass, the design is lightweight and durable enough to “walk” around your home. You can even set it down to “stay” or tilt it upright to “stand” … I wish my pups were so behaved!
Designer: Eglė Stonkutė
The Arturo lighting series makes clever use of cables and its wooden construction to create pendant, table and floor lamps that look as good OFF as they do ON! Constructed using carpentry techniques from the designers’ native Chile, the designs merge traditional woodwork with modern minimalism. Together or as single lighting solutions, they transform any space into an intimate and warm atmosphere.

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.
Designer: Alessandro Zambelli
