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

String Light (Black!)

I involuntarily gasped when I saw the String Light by Patrick Townsend are now available in black. Does that make me a dork? Maybe, but I don’t care. I’m in love with a light.

At first glance, the Patrick Townsend String Light looks industrial and exposed, with variably sized light bulbs protruding from powder coated aluminum casings, dangling at random from a black cord. Plug in this dimmable light fixture and the String Light assumes an entirely new aura. The white bulbs and unexpected red bulb glow with a whimsical and refreshing energy. Illuminating a room has never been so interesting.

X-Ray Light

Awe-some. (Imagine that said in a sing-song voice, sort of louder than what would be appropriate in public.)

Korean Designer Wonsuk Cho has designed a series of lights based on the light box commonly used to examine X-Ray film. These whimsical lights are created by taking X-rays of single incandescent and compact fluorescent bulbs. The images are subsequently mounted onto small black boxes which hang from the ceiling and once illuminated reveal their skeletal structure.

Designer: Wonsuk Cho
Each light ships with 2 x-ray bulb designs.
Materials: Steel Frame, X-Ray film, Transformer.
Dimensions: 5″W x 8.25″H x .8″D
