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.

Jellylamp

Jellylamp

As you might have guessed from the name, the Jellylamp was inspired by the fluorescent jellyfish and subtly mimics its shape and captivating glow. To adjust to the users mood, the design features pulse width modulated RGB LED strips, that can express various intensities of red, green and blue to achieve any color!

Opposite, but the same.

Opposite, but the same.

According to a Chinese philosophy known as Taijitu, life is based on a fundamental value of the harmonies that exist between opposites (think yin & yang!). Inspired by this duality, this pair of candelabras express the dynamic interplay of polar opposites with contrasting materials and colors. Both share the same form, but one is of cold, industrial metal and the other of warm, natural wood. Together, they’re a beautiful accent to the modern interior.

Thunder Lamp

Thunder Lamp

The simplistic Thunder lamp makes great use of cutting-edge OLED technology with its 3 swiveling, modular sections that provide fully flexible positioning for custom light coverage. As for its name, the bolt-shaped lamp also pairs wirelessly with your smartphone and flashes when you have incoming calls – similar to the sound and flash with thunder and lightning!

Good things come in threes...

Good things come in threes…

Named after the triplet sections of 3 OLED disc lights, the 3×3 MACH 9 pendant lamp is a versatile pendant with numbers on its side. The adjustable lighting arms allow the user to change the structure and create numerous geometric shapes and variable lighting patterns. The playful functionality encourages interaction and the versatile nature of the design makes it a great solution for both commercial and residential lighting.

Get The Message?

Get The Message?

The Message Bubble Light can be a good way to communicate your feelings or send across love notes to that special person. On the flipside it can also be an innovative way to send a break-up message! I know I’m being a pessimist here but I like the design-centric way you can use the transparent clear stand to write additional personal messages on the board. More like ‘I love you, but we need to talk’; when a woman says that…we all know what it means. What fun!

Bright Bamboo

Bright Bamboo

Inspired by the wood-grass of the same name, the Bambú lamp adopts the form of the bamboo’s iconic, column-on-column shape in a multifunctional lighting solution with a subtle oriental feel. The smaller of the two sizes doubles as a stool, side table or even a bucket for keeping your sake cold while the other is primarily purposed as a planter for larger vegetation. In pure white polypropylene resin, it’s a durable and attractive addition to modern spaces, inside and out.

Beutifully Archaic Lighting

Beutifully Archaic Lighting

There’s something sort of “stone-age” about the Kaji lamp & its simplistic, yet striking look that appears to be the work of a caveman’s first encounter with an electric light bulb. A single arm extends from the cord, effectively making the cord itself an integral part of the structure rather than a cumbersome nuisance. Propped on a slim teak fork, the unique construction creates an aesthetic reversal of the archetypical tripod desk lamp. A beautiful interpretation of the minimal/raw style that’s in vogue.

Shadow-Inspired Lighting

Shadow-Inspired Lighting

This large pendant light is based on the universal art of hand shadows where individuals use their hands to create birds, rabbits, and other figures. To merge this age-old tradition with modern materials and lighting, the innumerable cluster of hands create an expressive shade to shield direct light as well as casts familiar shadows on the surrounding walls.

Functional, Sculptural Lighting

Functional, Sculptural Lighting

The Worker lamp is designer Pascal Howe’s first addition to the VDI 2860 collection of “functional sculptures.” The design draws inspiration from his fascination for technical details as well as vinyl toys- a bit of nostalgia from being a child of the 80s and 90s. While the vinyl toys are typically small, The Worker is strikingly large at over four meters high. With the technological and structural intricacies completely visible, the design is complimentary to both industrial and minimal styles and also functions as a durable lighting solution for a variety of work areas.

Defining The Pendant

Defining The Pendant

The New Pendant Lamp for Wästberg is a creative piece of work by Claesson Koivisto Rune. The lamp seems surprisingly small, yet tactile and friendly. Crafted from Sand-cast recycled aluminum, the lamp is environmentally sound and offer a good reason behind the imperfections of the metal. I love the use of a textile cord; it adds a dash of softness to the design.

Mamba Meets Samba

Mamba Meets Samba

Ok, that makes no sense but I like the ring to it! Anyways, here are two very cool and complimenting projects by our man Kévin Depape. One is the Mamba Lamp and the other is the Elastik Desk. While the Mamba plays on the on the archetype of a lamp by questioning its components; the Elastik revisits the traditional home desks while being inspired by the old classroom desks with storage on top.
