Icon Pendant

A hundred dollars off? Yes please.

With a Panton-like playfulness, the Icon Lamp (2003) by Ferruccio Laviani is at once simple and dramatic in its scale and color. Made from color-tinted transparent vinyl polymer, the Icon’s dome-shaped shade reduces glare while appearing slightly iridescent when lit. At nearly two feet in diameter, it is a versatile, statement-making fixture for an entryway, dining room or restaurant, and can also be hung in multiples for increased visual impact.

Luau Portable Lamp

If you’re planning on spending any time lounging around outdoors this summer, you might want to consider these portable indoor/outdoor lamps (plus, right now you can get two for the price of one).

The Luau Portable Lamp (2006) makes standard table lamps look so, well, stationary. Suitable for indoor and outdoor use, Luau is a lighting solution that delivers dimmable light without being tethered to an electrical socket. When Luau is lifted from its base, the lamp automatically lights and the glow lasts for six to 10 hours. Increase or decrease the amount of light by spinning the lamp with the bottom against your palm. At its brightest setting, Luau delivers warm ambient light, and can be placed on a surface or hung from a hook or tree branch on its stainless steel handle.

Liquid Lamp

Personally, I think I’d prefer a different color than red, but other than than, these lamps are pretty intriguing. They certainly are different, and I like how they’re on a smaller scale, so they can be tucked into smaller work spaces perhaps.

These stark white lamps are made from sturdy iron plate, but their fluid shape reminds us more of that glass cup full of paint that we knocked over (if it had been suspended in motion).

Designer: Kouichi Okamoto
Available in wall or table versions. Red or white interior.
Table Lamp: 11.2″W x 7.9″D x 11.8″H

OFFI Cupstack and Vee Lamps

These two lamps by OFFI are simple sculptural forms that aren’t too bad price-wise.

OFFI Cupstack Lamp, $99.00,
Buy it here.

Inspired by the irregular stacking of cups and bowls, this asymmetrical glowing form sits comfortably on your shelf. The dynamic form is scaled perfectly to add a sculptural accent of light to any surface. The Cupstack light is hand crafted using mouth blown glass.

OFFI Vee Lamp, $99.00, Buy it here.

With minimal lines, Vee is shaped like a lamp, but it glows all over. The simple form is at a size that can fit in small spaces and add a soft glow of light to any surface. The Vee light is hand crafted using mouth blown glass.

Though my personal favorite remains the Studioilse lamp, the whole Wastberg Collection is incredibly impressive. (Also, with only a few days left of DWR’s sale (15% off is valid through March 18, 2009), it’s decision time if you’re considering any purchases.)

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).

Le Klint Joker Light

While this looks more like Batman’s style than the Joker’s, it has a strong modern presence that looks excellent over a dining table.

The Joker was created by Christian Ræder in 1970 where it won 1st prize at the Scandinavian Lighting fair. This light pendant simply assembled by hand, provides a beautiful light and acts as an exciting sculpture in the room, even when it is off. The Joker is available in either white on white or black on white.

Rabbit Lamp

I firmly believe every home should have something a bit weird or whimsical (if they don’t, it just so serious), and this cute-yet-sort-of-odd lamp fits the bill.

The best thing about Heico lamps is that until they’re lit, you’d never know you were looking at a lamp. The company takes such great care to give every piece real personality, that the result is a piece far more sculptural than utilitarian. This Rabbit Lamp is a great example of such work. Unlit throughout the day he looks like a statue, but at night is when he really shines.

Material: Molded, heat resistant plastic
Size: 9.75 H, 4.25 W, 7 L
