Faux Wax Candlestick

This will save you hours of patiently waiting for wax to drip. And, if an extra zero doesn’t send your wallet into hiding, turn your attention to the Vesuvius Candlestick (pictured above right) by Ted Muehling.

“This surreal candlestick appears to be dripping wax. However, upon closer examination it is made entirely of china (Earthenware.)”

20 x 12cm with a diameter of 8.5cm.

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?

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″.

Bague Table Lamp by Patricia Urquiola & Eliana Gerotto

Patricia Urquiola is a master at taking any material and making it look soft and delicate.

The inspiration for the Bague table lamp was drawn from the shape of a ring. It was first presented with material never before used to make a lamp. The result was a stretched metal mesh painted white or light grey, whose surface was covered in transparent silicone resin, to diffuse a soft filtered light. A thick plexiglass ‘stopper’ was used to cut glare and increase the propagation of light upwards.
