Containers of Light

Containers of Light

The word “flaca” is one of the only things I remember from Spanish class – it translates as proportionately lean; a perfect description for the Flaca lamp. The sophisticated lighting solution itself has minimal aesthetic impact on the wall to which it is mounted, but its diffused upward and downward illumination create a decorative play of light against the wall surface. Its perfect for highlighting above or below, or simply to create definition between spaces.

A Different Kind of Desk Lamp

A Different Kind of Desk Lamp

The Ugol lamp is a simplistic desktop lighting solution with a very creative way of staying upright. Designed to hug any corner, it leverages the table itself as a means of support. Simply position it on any of the four points to direct light where you need it. Without sacrificing brightness, the minimal design’s small footprint leaves the user with more usable space to work.

Alchemist Lamp

Alchemist Lamp

The Molting lamp’s unique arrangement of aluminum and walnut strips that make up its classically shaped shade create a visual eccentricity that appears to change with the viewers perspective. One moment it’s wood, another metal, and sometimes even an amalgamation of the two! The effect is exaggerated by the lined pattern of shadows created by the space between each strip.

Stalactites of Light

Stalactites of Light

The Stalasso pendant lamp was inspired by one of nature’s own art forms, the stalactite dripstone. The elegant form captures the essence of the naturally occurring contrast of water as it drips from the tip of the mineral deposit. It’s versatile as a single hanging “drop” of light, an ambience-inspiring cluster, or an expansive arrangement across large spaces.

Bright and Buzzworthy

Bright and Buzzworthy

The insect-inspired Swarm lighting series introduces playful illumination in the form of clustered, wasp-shaped pendants that feel like a colony suspended in motion! With distinct Scandinavian design quality, their simple composition of glass, metal, and elegant woodcraft hearkens back to a simpler time when the creative process was just as important as the end product.

In Love With The Sonneman Quattro

In Love With The Sonneman Quattro

We’ve reviewed our share of LED task lamps but our latest procurement, the Sonneman Quattro, evokes a kind of playful spirit normally reserved for Luxo, the Pixar Lamp. The lamp is immaculately engineered. The aforementioned playful spirit comes from the retangular arm that articulates at multiple points. It freely rotates 90º at the base with two additional pivot points across the arm. Devoid of any discernable switches, the lamp is switched on by a feather’s touch above the LED plate. Tapping it multiple times cycles through 3 brightness settings.

Round Light Done Right

Round Light Done Right

When it comes to lighting, there’s something about spherical white shades that just makes sense. Simple, yet expressive, they permit omnidirectional lighting and also make for a great diffuser. Creative Pill’s ORB lamps capitalize on this very character and practicality but with a twist. The table and floor lamps 3 legs appear to pierce the sphere, using it as a stabilizer for the tripodal structure. Simple and creative, they’re an easy addition to any contemporary space.

Ooo La La Lighting!

Ooo La La Lighting!

The OOO lamp derives its name from the ultra-thin, perfectly circular plate that composes its shade. The swiveling shade is made possible by using a rotary joint and dual magnets that connect the tubular arm to the top and bottom plates. The result is a a sculptural lighting object with fewer parts, straightforward assembly, and easy functionality! Simply give the shade a light press to focus the light in any direction, or position it upright to hide direct light and create an ambient glow.
