Gone are the days when lighting designs were boring and typically designed objects that did nothing but add light to a living space. A well-designed lighting fixture should not only have the ability to illuminate any living space but also add that extra oomph factor! I mean, of course, we need them to see in the dark, but as highly functional as they should be, a lighting fixture also needs to be aesthetically pleasing, adding an attractive and visually soothing element to your home or office space. And, one such unique lighting design I came across is the Emotional Lab Light.
Designer: Hania Jneid
Dubbed the Emotional Lab Light, this unique and ethereal-looking lighting design was created by interior designer Hania Jneid. Jneid was inspired by chemistry sets, and she drew influence from them to create her eclectic and elaborate floor lamp. The Emotional Lab floor lamp includes a tall and slender metal lamp that provides support to multiple beaker-like glass vessels that illuminate any space they’re placed into with a warm and inviting flow.
The lighting radiated by the glass vessels is ambient and seductive. You can also consider optional metal modules which include a vase and a small storage unit, which in turn provide a material contrast and impart depth and a sense of narrative to the elegant piece. The design was influenced by Jneid’s childhood memories of chemistry labs, and that can be seen in the unique form and design of the piece. She produced the Emotional Lab light through her own studio.
“I am intrigued by the playfulness and underlying interactions between the different elements of the lab system,” said Jneid. “This is translated in the user’s ability to configure different compositions in order to reach a new aesthetic, simulating a new chemical reaction.” The Emotional Lab Light is a part of the Emotional Lab series which also includes a modular storage system. The collection is handcrafted by artisans in Spain, Italy, and Lebanon. The lamp is available in material options of anodized aluminum, brass, or stainless steel with multiple marbles to select from for the base.
