Foscarini Diesel Rock Pendant Light

Oh, look at this lovely faceted pendant light. The surface is sure to catch the light in all sorts of ways, and the black/cream is a no brainer for any color scheme.

The Rock Pendant Light is part of the ‘Successful Living’ collection by Diesel from Foscarini. Made from polycarbonate it has a black exterior and white interior. Evoking the industrial design typical of Diesel Rock has a contemporary, raw appeal which lends itself to any interior. It comes with a maximum drop available of 200cm.

Dimensions : H: 38cm; Diameter : 50cm

Design House Work Lamp, Gold and Chrome

Who knew a boring work lamp could look so attractive simply by a few tiny changes and some gold-plating? (I’d wager a guess there are many things that would benefit from the same transformation, though don’t go and be all completely ridiculous about it.)

The Swedish trio behind Form Us With Love–Jonas Pettersson, John Lofgren and Petrus Palmer–refined the lowly utility light into something beautiful with a few new bends of the angled cage, a dimmer switch to match your mood, and thickening those wires by plating them in chrome or gold. The naked bulb is protected–you can treat it as haphazardly as the one in your garage. But it’s so striking you’ll want to spotlight one or more in your home or office.

Packaging: Gift Box
Size: 8″ t x 5.8″ dia
Cord is 10′ long with dimmer and plug.

The lamp comes in gold-plated ($120.00) and chrome-plated ($100.00) versions.

Also available here: € 145.00

I sort of love this prism-shaped light. It’s a good size and has a good amount of bang for the buck. There’s also the Nigel Lamp that a slightly different shape but same price.

Blok Pendant Lights

I love this simple wooden block light with its vintage style bulb. It’s a nice study in contrasts. Keep in mind that it doesn’t come with hanging hardware, but that’s easy to get (a small hook or something from the hardware store would work).

Made from a solid piece of olive wood, this light is stunningly simple in form and function. Featuring a vintage style Edison carbon filament bulb that gives off a warm orange-ish glow and allows you to see its beautiful glowing filament. This light will plug into any standard wall outlet, and comes with a 13ft black or white cord attached for easy hanging anywhere in your home.

Olive or Walnut wood.
Dimensions are: Approx. 5″ long – 2 1/4″ wide without light bulb. Bulb adds another approx. 4-5″ in length.

Moooi Clusterlamp by Joel Degermark, 2004

Lately I’ve been thinking of adding a modern pendant lamp in my kitchen with an old medallion for a nice little juxtaposition between old and new. I did it before in my old house and I think it created a nice effect. I just love this Moooi Cluster Lamp and think it would be a perfect modern light fixture. Moooi is one of my favorite design houses right now: they have such a tongue-in-cheek view of design with a perfect sense of proportion and flawless execution.

Dimensions 6.3″W X 6.3″H; includes 118″ of wire. Uses 3 X 60W max E26 (medium base) and 2 X 40W max E12 (candelabra base) incandescent lamps (bulbs are not included).

Still Light by Nathalie Dewez

This is incredibly useful as well as lovely. The lamp slides to the desired position from the ‘T’ joint, enabling you to position the light above a table or seating area without messing too much with electrical wires.

”Electrical inlets rarely are just above the dining table…” This adjustable pendant lamp responds to this issue by combining functionality and poetry, rationalism and lightness. A lamp you can position in space like a graphic mobile. A thin line seems to float in the air; a puff of wind would have it slightly moving. According to wish or need, the whole lamp slides very simply in the T part that holds it.

Available in two sizes: 240cm and 150cm. Height adjustable. Sets of one or three lamps, sold in convenient cardboard tube package.

Use: Indoor
Materials: Stainless Steel
Finishes: Lacquered

The Modo Chandelier by Jason Miller

So, yes, this chandelier is (ahem) expensive, but get this, it can be configured in all sorts of ways due to its spoke and hub system. What is a spoke and hub system? Well, according to some dictionaries it’s all about air transportation, but I’m sure you can probably figure it out by looking at the picture. Also, there’s a 4 Sided ($6,000.00) and 3 Sided ($4,000.00) version if that’s a bit easier to swallow.

All the parts are custom CNC milled from solid aluminum.
Materials: Black anodized aluminum, glass (glass is available in smoke and clear)
Dimensions: 37″ H x 66″ Dia.

Price: $8,400.00
