Ceiling/Pendant

Soft Lamp- Hanging

You might have seen the flat version of this posted before, but this is the first time I’ve come accross this smaller/thinner version.

“This whimsical rubber lamp is called “soft” because in fact it is; one can literally flex the diffuser which contains the bulb. It can be used anywhere. The cord which suspends the diffuser seemingly melts into the diffuser creating a continuous form.”

Available in white only.

notes: diffuser measures 4″ x 7″; cord measures 54″ maximum length (can be cut as part of being installed into ceiling fixture)

Random Light

Hugely dramatic, light as a feather and distinctly Dutch, the Random Light (2002) by Bertjan Pot began as a modernist craft project of sorts. After attempts at knitting fiberglass as a means of creating structure, Pot turned to coiling epoxy-dipped fiberglass around a large balloon in varying patterns. Once the balloon was popped, the dramatic globe shape remained, becoming a buoyant pendant lamp for an entryway, dining room or lounge area. The light bulb is visible at the center of the globe, and when lit, creates an allover glow with minimal glare.

Bulb (not included): Incandescent 75W/120V/E26/A19.
Made in the Netherlands. UL listed for commercial use.

Falkland Pendant Light- Spazia

I believe we posted this light over a year ago, but unfortunately I had not realized the actual scale, despite dimensions being readily available. It’s a whole lot of light (as shown in a better picture with a human form as comparison) for a decent price.

“Designed by Bruno Munari in 1964, this original custom design became a modern-day classic. The Falkland Pendant Lamp features a tubular metal frame and aluminum structure, with an elastic fabric shade, and operates on a single 100W (max) standard light bulb (not included).”

Cog Light

Add this to your list of very affordable lightsources. It’s always nice to find something that you could pay for without feeling the least bit guilty.

“Cog is a sophisticated pendant shade with a sleek and elegant appearance. All Blue Marmalade’s design ingenuity has gone into developing this shade so that it can be made from one single material, even the lamp holder is made from the same thin sheet plastic and it can still take bulbs up to 100W making it a bright spark.”

Basket Saucer Suspension

I often joke that lighting is to a room as a hand bag is to a woman’s ensemble: the perfect finishing touch. So it doesn’t surprise me that i can remember 3 years back when the d-form lighting catalog first arrived in my mailbox; stunning only begins to describe these lamps and pendants. Founded in 2001 and based in Brooklyn, James Dieter and company hand assemble each lamp of die cut wood veneers in one of six breathtaking patterns.

My favorite is this Nelson-inspired Basket Saucer Suspension pendant. Available in aspen or birch veneer, each is custom made-to-order. A bit pricey, yes, but could you imagine anything more beautiful above your dining table?

Diffuser: Diameter 30 in., Height 11 in.

Agave – Sphere Pendant

Check it out: it’s energy-efficient, on sale, and has different light filters so you can change the mood whenever it strikes you.

“As they experimented with lighting designs that used fluorescent bulbs, designers Rossi and Tedesco set out to create an energy-efficient fixture that was also technically and aesthetically sophisticated. The result is the modular Agave Lamp, a ribbed, radial structure made of acrylic and resembling the rosette of an agave plant. The Agave produces a light as clear as tequila (which comes from the plant) and optimizes light distribution, whether throughout a room or over a table top. Each model comes with three primary colored light filters, for a total of nine shades of light to let you customize the room’s hues according to mood or event.”

Creepers.mgx

This is quite stunning.

“Creepers is a complex pattern of fine, light catching leaves made of laser sintered nylon. Clipping an array of Creeper stems on floor-to-ceiling cables creates floating clouds of light that divide interior spaces. Intertwined leaves sprout from the stem in a seemingly random disorder: collectively these surfaces cover a pre-ordained reflector area. Each leaf follows the same structural rules but with considerable scope for individual variance. Thicknesses taper from the main stem to reflectors thin enough to be semi-translucent. The stems contain LEDs that project light onto the leaves.”

Cross Pendant –Now on Sale

“The bold but spare Cross Pendant Light, winner of the red dot award in 2003, is a roto-molded double cruciform lamp that distills the iconic shape to its bones and accomplishes it with ironic refinement. When switched on, it becomes a luminous white or orange plus sign, radiating soft circles of light from each end. Hung laterally in multiples, a group of Pendants forms a constellation of stars. A light bulb fits into the cross’s center through the upper cylinder. The lamp can be suspended from above to achieve a soft, complex glow or placed on a table as a sculptural light source. Bulb (not included) Incandescent 60W/120V/E26/A19.”
