RestartMilano Lamps

I hesitate to use the word ‘dainty’ to describe these lamps from RestartMilano, mostly because it brings to mind doilies and frail flowers. With their sleek swivel arms and warm brass finish, these lamps are just the opposite, yet the thin silhouette allows for a light touch in any interior, allowing other elements to take center stage. And, as an update, the Short Wall Lamp is now on sale.

Balad Lamp from Fermob

Need some flexible outdoor lighting? The Balad Lamp from Fermob is just the right size to tote around. And, compared to some other portable, outdoor lights (like the Uma), it’s absolutely affordable. The aluminum handle has a button at its base that dims the light and turns the lamp on and off. As a bonus, the accompanying Small and Large Stand transform the hand-held Balad into a floor lamp for outdoor dining or seating areas.

Concentric Wall Light

You can’t afford a commissioned Turrell light installation in your living room, but maybe you can afford a Concentric Wall Light from Marset. It’s still expensive, sure, but if you’re a big fan of glowing color, you’re going to like the options you get from the concentric design, especially in the dark.

Bo Light

Yes, you just saw the Hiline Lighting, but this new Bo Light from Massess is something else. Shaped like an archery bow, a slim strip of solid oak is tensioned by wire, which magically doubles as the light switch. Simply touch the wire to activate the imbedded LEDs for a diffused light on the wall or tabletop. Watch the video below to see it in action.

Moon Lamp

Do you need a moon lamp? Hmm, maybe you could justify the purchase if you plan to study the Moon’s craters, elevation and ridges for scientific research… or artistic inspiration? The Moon Lamp is a 1:20 million replica, done in an expertly crafted mold*, that has an LED ring that revolves around the globe to recreate lunar phases as seen from our planet. Pretty cool, right?

Hiline Lighting

You can make your own deconstructed, utilitarian lighting, but will your attempt look as good as these Hiline pieces? And, while we’re considering your skills, let’s reflect on the price of the Hiline Spotlight, Sconce, and Pendant, and think about if it’s worth the time and effort to make your own, or if it’s best to just support someone else that’s doing it right. I vote on the latter.

You don’t think you need a flashlight until you do, so, make sure you have one at the ready, just in case. And, if you have to have a flashlight, why not make it the Signal Flashlight by Sylvain Willenz? It’s made from aluminum and silicone and has a handy USB rechargeable battery that powers an ultra-bright LED. As a bonus, you can pick your favorite color option (you know, to match your decor).

Grip LED Torch Flashlight

Why not employ the same grips of the BMX bicycle to a flashlight? You don’t want to drop it on your toes, after all, especially not in a dark, potentially scary room when there’s no electricity. It’s a practical, tactile solution to sweaty palms.

Cap Table Lamp

It’s cute, right? Available in white, blush, misty blue, or midnight blue, the Cap Table Lamp has an adjustable shade on a small, cylindrical base. That means it won’t take up too much room on a side table or worktop, yet you’ll be able to direct the light right where you want it. Is it the perfect reading lamp for your favorite reading spot? Could be. Take a look at the different colors and see if one catches your eye.

Less For Less Desk Lamp

Is this the thinnest desk lamp you’ve ever seen? A very slender metal tube bent into a perfect corner comprises the Less For Less Desk Lamp. Could it take up any less room? It’s doubtful; just check out its almost-not-there base. It’s safe to say it won’t get in your way. LED lights will save energy while providing ample light for your workspace.

The NJP is a new interpretation of the classic architect’s lamp. Meant for optimal flexibility for a work area, the lamp provides glare-free light precisely where you want it. It’s easy to adjust thanks to the two arm joints, and the shade has a rear opening for LED unit ventilation. Choose between the Wall (short or long), Table, or Floor versions.

PH 5 Pendant Light

If you’re going to buy a PH 5 Pendant Light, it might as well be on sale. This classic light was designed by Poul Henningsen in 1958 and remains one of the smarter choices for glare-free illumination. You’re probably familiar with the slightly more popular PH Artichoke by Henningsen, yet the price tag on that makes it a little less attainable. The curved reflectors on the PH5 ensure that light is directed appropriately, and, with several superb color combinations, it’s a perfect choice for above a dining table or workspace.

Chamber Light

If you’re particularly attuned to any and all forms of lighting ambience, chances are likely that you’ll not settle for any ol’ hurricane lantern for all the summer evenings ahead. So, feast your eyes upon the Chamber light, which is appropriate for tealights or oil. A small handle incorporated into the base makes it quite portable, while the glass shade is just.. well, pretty.

Polo Table Lamp

An articulated task lamp is essential if you’re at your desk in the early morning or very late at night, though let’s hope you’re not working too hard. Check out the Polo Table Lamp, with its small footprint and long, skinny arms. Three joints allow for precise illumination and smooth movement, both a must when you’re in a work zone. A succinct shade takes up little visual space, allowing for a minimal vibe that fits your workspace perfectly.
