Ceiling/Pendant

E27 Silicon Light

Today’s apparently the day for romantic and contemporary talk. These lights strike me as a fun way to add a little color…they would look great above a small dining table or lined up in a row above a counter.

There is something both romantic and contemporary in the simplicity of the naked bulb, believes designer Mattias Ståhlbom, a partner in the internationally acclaimed architecture-design studio TAF, who celebrates the “essence” of the lamp—the socket—in a model he dubs E27 for the Finnish house Muuto. We couldn’t agree more. The colorful silicon rubber cord extends to 4 meters (13.12 feet).

Available in Yellow, Green, Dark Grey, White and Red.
Bulb diameter is 130 mm (about 5 inches).

Double Stray light

Here’s a rather nice textured pendant to shed light in a corner or above a dining table.

Double Stray is a flexible white ceiling lamp inspired by the simplicity and translucence of Chinese paper lanterns. Packaged flat, the piece unfolds accordion-style to reveal an intricate moiré pattern. The name Double Stray is derived from the two overlapping line grids that serve as both the focal point of the lampshade’s visual style as well as the source of its structural integrity.

Tyvek with white hanging cord.

Heat-resistant and can be used with any kind of light bulb. Use Fibonacci as a pendant light by pulling it over a lampholder
