Hono Light

Check this out: what functions essentially as a candle is actually an LED. That in itself is nothing particularly new, but this flickering light has a magnetic “match” which turns it on or off.

The Hono Light (2005) combines the warm ambient glow of a candle with advancements in LED technology to create an “object that fascinates us in a moment.” This is Chiaki Murata’s goal for everything in his product line, Metaphys. When lit, Hono flickers like candlelight, with a “flame” produced by an algorithm-programmed LED. Turn it on or off by gently striking a magnetic “match” on the lamp’s surface. The light can also be blown out, like a candle, and will automatically turn back on after 10 seconds. Able to be safely affixed to a wall, Hono has some advantages over traditional wax. It comes with a charger, and one 15-hour charge will keep Hono illuminated for eight hours.

Edison Chandelier

This is one crazy octopus-like chandelier, but the industrial feel could look very good in the right sort of setting. Looks like you’d have license to hang it however you’d like, so that could be fun figuring out whether to go symmetrical or all-out random.

Around the turn of the century, designers like Adolf Loos were drawn to the austere beauty of industrial light fixtures and adapted them for home interiors. In that spirit, we’ve taken the bare essentials of lighting – wires, sockets and bulbs – and elevated them to a lofty aesthetic. The chandelier can be hung in any configuration to suit any room’s decor. Ten fabric-covered cords extend from a circular bronzed ceiling plate. Clear oversized bulbs have visible filaments (included). Cords are 46″ l.

Overall: 5.5″ diameter, 50.5″ long
Canopy: 5.5″ diameter, 1.5″ high

This light uses it’s surroundings to dictate what color it will glow.

Believe it or not, this intriguing little device has the amazing, chameleon-like ability to change colors according to its environment. The way it works is sort of like a one-pixel camera; turn it on and three LED lights (in red, blue and green) detect the strength of reflected light, then matches and stores the external color source. For multi-colored surfaces, the average color is reflected. Sure, it does make a perfect tool for decorators and designers… but for something as cool as this, do you really even need to find a practical use?

Corona Chandelier

I like how this looks kind of upside down and how the historic bulbs play off the otherwise modern styling.

A dramatic centerpiece for the dining room or entry, it’s suspended from three fixed rods attached to an adjustable center rod. Uses twelve 40W max. type A historic bulbs (included). UL-approved. Professional installation recommended. 24″ diam.; height adjusts from 46″ to 82″.
