Falkland Pendant Light- Spazia

I believe we posted this light over a year ago, but unfortunately I had not realized the actual scale, despite dimensions being readily available. It’s a whole lot of light (as shown in a better picture with a human form as comparison) for a decent price.

“Designed by Bruno Munari in 1964, this original custom design became a modern-day classic. The Falkland Pendant Lamp features a tubular metal frame and aluminum structure, with an elastic fabric shade, and operates on a single 100W (max) standard light bulb (not included).”

Sun Jar by Tobias Wong

I’ve been following the work of Tobias Wong for sometime now. His ever present sense of humor makes for some interesting design ideas…his collaboration with Ju$t Another Rich Kid brought us 24k gold plated Bic pen caps, and McDonalds coffee stirrers “for the man who has absolutely everything.”

I recently discovered the Sun Jar, which isn’t available just yet, but may be something you’ll want to pre-order. At a mere $38, this old-fashioned glass jar contains a solar panel LED light system that will store the days sunlight and illuminate your space at night. It reminds me of catching fireflys as a child. We would poke holes in mason jars and have a little lantern powered by mother nature, that is, of course, until my mother would make me release them.

’60 watt’ Votives by Walteria Living

Flickering candlelight in the form of a lightbulb. Pretty clever.

“votives in the form of large globe 60 watt light bulbs made out of thin cast white porcelain – allowing the small candle within to emit a warm, glowing light.
each votive comes with a votive holder, made to hold the object at an angle, allowing the threaded bulb base to act as both a handle and a vent.”

Includes 2 votives and 2 holders.

6”w x 5”d x 5″h : base – 3.5”d

Random Light

Hugely dramatic, light as a feather and distinctly Dutch, the Random Light (2002) by Bertjan Pot began as a modernist craft project of sorts. After attempts at knitting fiberglass as a means of creating structure, Pot turned to coiling epoxy-dipped fiberglass around a large balloon in varying patterns. Once the balloon was popped, the dramatic globe shape remained, becoming a buoyant pendant lamp for an entryway, dining room or lounge area. The light bulb is visible at the center of the globe, and when lit, creates an allover glow with minimal glare.

Bulb (not included): Incandescent 75W/120V/E26/A19.
Made in the Netherlands. UL listed for commercial use.

Four Arm Candleholder

Several of these scattered randomly about the center of a table would make an extremely nice centerpiece, or one on it’s own would make a nice, simple accent.

“Finely crafted from polished stainless steel, this four arm candleholder evokes 1970’s minimalist sculpture. Expertly balanced, it adds a striking modern note to any table or credenza.”

7″D x 11.5″H
