Fall of the Damned by Luc Merx

This is probably best played in a commercial application or a large scale home, but the Fall of the Damned pendant lamp is a slightly frightening, if not interesting way to light a space.

“A dramatic, pendant lampshade, shaped into a classic image of guilt and morality. From a distance, The Fall of the Damned appears to be an organic and intricately textured ornament. Upon closer inspection it is revealed as a mass of naked bodies, reminiscent of Dante and Rubens, fused together in agonizing beauty.

The amazingly complex shape of this limited edition lampshade was made possible via the help of Materialise’s MGX technology. Using innovative 3D printing, digitally created designs are ‘printed’ with a laser, adding layer upon layer until an intricately detailed piece is formed.

Limited Edition of 40.”

Snare Pendant Lamp

This pendant lamp measures less than a foot across so it would be perfect for smaller scale settings, such as over a small dining table or kitchen island. And it has a really small price tag too, so you could even buy one for either side of the bed.

“Sleek 3″ brushed steel band, frosted glass diffuser and metal mesh top keep a tight modern beat. White cord with tandem metal cable for extra reinforcement.”

Range candle holders

These candle holders make such an interesting arrangement. Three come in a set, and three sets were used in the photo.

Glow Pendant

This geometric brass pendant lamp was designed by Italian designer Enrico Franzolini and designer Vicente Garcia Jimenez.

“The Glow casts warm, fractured light inspired by the dappled effect of sunlight sifting through leaves. Burnished with an antique matte brass, its multiple angles create a unique pattern of light refraction.”

Coral Pendant

These pendants are not only lovely, but also created from sustainable materials.

“The Coral Pendant (2004) is the result of two influences: the repeating patterns of ice crystals David Trubridge saw in Antarctica and the similar patterns he saw in underwater coral…The Coral Pendant arrives unassembled to make shipping more efficient and to reduce the amount of packing materials. Instructions for simple assembly are included and no tools are required.”

Australian sustainable-plantation-grown hoop pine untreated plywood; dual-core electrical flex PVC cord; white painted metal ceiling plate; stainless steel rivets.

Marie Louise Lamp by Buro Vormkrijgers

This lamp looks amazing, but you sure would have to save up for it.

“Made of PMMA sheets illuminated by a special fluorescent bulb, Marie Louise is definitely a new take on the traditional table lamp. As with the chandelier “Therese”, and the floor lamp “Josephine”, Marie Louise emits a soft magic glow. A definite eye-catcher in any environment.”

Also available in an engraved version (“shade” only).
Eight color filters available.

Series 21 One Pendant Canopy by Bocci

Of course multiples look spectacular, but it would require more of investment than just one. I love the sculptural, almost-paper-bag look to it.

“the series 21 fixture by omer arbel is a porcelain and borosilicate glass fixture suspended by metal cable to a brushed nickel canopy. inspired by the sporadic arrangement of barnacles on a a substrate in nature, the porcelain is wrapped around glass cones of different sizes, resulting in a unique appearance to each fixture.”

standard cable length is 10′. Now taking advance orders (shipping December 2007).[posted by katie]

Based on the award winning Tolomeo Desk Lamp (1987), the tolomeo spot lamp has all the features of the original with the convenience and portability of a clip on.

Able to be positioned anywhere indirect or direct lighting is needed, the Clip Spot is suitable for shelf, pipe or table mounting. The on/off switch is incorporated in the lamp holder.

Bauhaus Floor Lamp

We’ve posted the Bauhaus Table Lamp, and now there’s a floor lamp version to accompany it. Such a good price…

“The form is classic modern, but the execution’s a total rethink in top to bottom all metal, all white. Pedestal iron base rises clean, straightforward. Shade is a major surprise in handmade smooth aluminum. Un-color is a smashing high-gloss whiteout. Clear cord disappears nicely.”

Patrick Townsend: Orbit Chandelier and String Lights

I’m quite fond of the seemingly random light strings of Patrick Townsend, and the chandelier isn’t too shabby either.

Costanzina Table Lamp

A smaller version of the classic:

“Paolo Rizzato’s Costanzina Lamp (1992) is a diminutive update to his classic Costanza Lamp, which has been copied so frequently, it’s become an archetype of modern lighting. Costanzina’s square brushed-aluminum base firmly holds a coordinating aluminum stem. The polycarbonate shade, which is held together with five aluminum rivets, offers a warm, diffused light and is easy to clean.”

Spotlight Floor Lamp

Not too long ago we posted the Photography Floor Lamp, and I’d say this one is comparable- perhaps this one has slightly more of a modern feel…

“15″ tripod base keeps things steady as chrome-plated lamp telescopes from 44″ to 61″ high. Especially effective in multiples. Uses one 75-watt bulb, not included. Sleek anodized aluminum shade. 98″-long cord. The on/off switch is located on the spotlight head.”
