Magno Tube Lamp

With some magnet trickery, you can change the angle of this copper-colored Magno Tube Lamp to suit your needs. Such flexibility is possible thanks to the separate parts of concrete base, tube, and cord. Let the light hang, pull the cord taut, whichever way you change it up it’ll be more versatile than any regular ol’ table lamp. Neat!

Sphelar® Solar Flashlight

This flashlight utilizes micro-spherical solar cells to harness the sun’s power. Micro-what? Mirco-spherical solar cells. They’re tiny orbs that capture sunlight from all directions, which means a lot of light is absorbed. The Sphelar® Solar Flashlight will provide you with up to four hours of LED light, all powered by the sun. A wooden base is included for stability while charging.

Norm 69 Lamp

Let’s do a little comparison to put the price of this Norm 69 Lamp into perspective. The 69-part lamp was inspired by the intricate exterior of the pinecone, and was originally designed in 1969 by Simon Karkov. It takes a little while to assemble, but you won’t need tools or any adhesives. You’ll also need to find a socket and cord, but that shouldn’t be any problem in this day and age. The price? $130.

CMYK Up Lamp

What the what is going on with this CMYK Up Lamp? Dennis Parren has combined red, yellow, and blue LED bulbs to create an interesting mix of light. When the three primary colors are combined, you’ll see a white light. However, when one of these color bulbs is blocked by the structural form of the lamp itself, then the other two combine to produce tertiary shadows (cyan, magenta, and yellowish colors). Pretty spectacular, isn’t it?

Mirobolite Lamp

Let’s start the day off with a semi-expensive floor lamp. The Mirobolite has obvious influences from an ordinary task lamp, yet with its multiple joints and color options it becomes slightly extraordinary. ‘Slightly’ because the black and raw version don’t entirely blow your socks off, however, if you’re a little more daring in your color scheme, you might prefer the multicolor, which doesn’t hold back with its palette one bit.

Unfold Pendant by Form Us With Love

As you might have noticed, there have been a few posts lately from the recent and oh-so-long-ago past. That’s because it’s August, and, thankfully, that means it’s time to take a much needed vacation. So, instead of doing all brand spanking new posts each and every weekday, you’ll be seeing some content being fixed and updated and peppered into the line up, which is a good thing unless you like finding a lot of broken links every time you sift through our site.

All that to say that, thankfully, this Unfold Pendant remains at the same price as it was three years ago. Happy day. It’s one of my favorite lights because of its soft silicone shade. That allows this industrial look-a-like pendant to be easily folded, saving space in shipping (or your own moving) boxes.

Pixo LED Table Lamp (black/brass)

With the new color pairing of black and brass, the Pixo looks like it has put on its tux (or little black dress) and is ready for a night out. As you might remember from our previous post last year, the standout feature of the Pixo is not necessarily the 360 degree rotation and three-axis articulated stem; instead its USB port in the base for charging mobile devices seems to set it apart from the pack.

Cross, Hex, and Tri Pendants

If money was not a concern, I’m sure many of us would opt for one of these pendants designed by Resident Studio. Aluminum or brass channels have LEDs hidden inside to keep the shape extremely clean and sculptural. The results are a group of light fixtures that double as art objects; each could provide a modern contrast with more traditional interiors or fit in easily with similarly minimal/modern furnishings. Take your time considering all three: the Cross, the Hex, and the Tri Pendant Light.

Pipe Candle Holder

Danish designer Pernille Vea based this candle holder on a 6th century Viking design she saw in the National Museum. It’s rudimentary, for sure, yet it’s also quite handy as outdoor lighting as you could hammer or spike them into trees, the ground, the table, etc. (just make sure if it’s your table you’re all right with a few holes). And, they’re on sale: $24 down from $35. See Danish designer Pernille Vea talk about the design in the video below (or on Youtube).

Trouble Light

Oh, what to do when you need a wall sconce but you only have around $150 to spend? Turn your eyes toward this straightforward fixture by Sam Stewart available at Artware Editions. A spherical 25-watt bulb hangs from a cotton cloth cord (choose between Solid red, Solid black, Black/white stripe, Red/white stripe, or Golden yellow); just wrap the cord around the wooden mount for the desired height.

Take-off Lights

Ooo, this light is fun! You’re in charge of the final design pattern, so put your designer hat on and start brainstorming. Each lampshade is made of two sheets of paper with a fine pattern of laser stitches. Punch out the small triangle pieces to create whatever pattern you wish. Yes, you’d have to do a fair amount of punching, but it’d be worth it, right? After a little assembly, hang it up and then stand back and admire your hard work. (Note: free worldwide shipping, so don’t be dissuaded by the ‘€’ in the price.)

Birdy T Table Lamp

Some of the new offerings from Forestier are interesting enough to mention, one of which is this Birdy T Table Lamp. A handful of materials (metal, marble, stone, and cloth cord) make for a simple, white T-shape lamp that would fit on a desk or side table quite well. LEDs give you energy efficiency without sacrificing the brightness you need to read by, and the 4 feet of red fabric cord adds a nice pop of color against the otherwise all-white body. Also be sure to check out the Deposit Table Lamp, which has a similar look but a more concentrated beam.
