Table Lighting

Mozzkito Table Lamp

This lamp definitely looks like it’s straight from science fiction film, where the ‘lamp’ portion was some type of torture device (or do I just think that because it’s similar to the something in Star Wars?).

“This over-the-top design will spur conversation in any space that it is used. It features an electronic transformer and dimmer.”

Mozzkito uses one 50 watt halogen bulb.
measures approx. 31.5″ max length x 31.5″ max height

Hickory Silk Lampshade

Quite similar in feel to the Twitchen Lampshade, this lampshade captures one of nature’s best saturated hues.

“Shades are constructed by laminating fabric onto a pvc parchment, then they use a hand rolling method to finish the edges. The shade is 10″ in diameter, top and bottom, and 8″ tall. These are lamp shades only, for table lamps or hanging ficture lamps. There is a universal metal ring that fits between the fixture and the lightbulb. 60 Watt max. The shade in photo has a removable protective plastic sleeve, so its clearer than shown.”

Lamp/Lamp by Hironao Tsuboi

We posted this about a year ago and I had forgotten all about it, which maybe means you did too.

“It’s hard to think of a light source as mundane as the naked bulb…. but, in a surprising twist, the Lamp/Lamp gives it a new and delightfully absurd personality by simply adding an extra socket.”

3.75″W x 3″L x 2.25″H

Update: A representative from DARK says “this is initially designed by Davy Grosemans. DARK took this lamp in collection in 2003 (Davy designed it in 2002). 4 years before Hironao ‘designed’ this.” Hmm.

Twitchen Silk Lampshade

This lampshade sure shows some green greenery. The feel of taking a walk through the woods would never be too far away if you added this lampshade to one of your rooms.

‘The shade is 20″ in diameter, top and bottom, and 9″ tall. These are lamp shades only, for table lamps or hanging fixture lamps. There is a universal metal ring that fits between the fixture and the lightbulb… You can flip your old lamp into a super pretty natural glow. Each lamp also comes with a bottom light diffuser. It’s a “bottom” to the shade that gives it a sealed, light box look. The shade works without the diffuser as well, but a diffuser is included with each one. 60 watt max.’

NOD Bedside Night Light by IC Design

I like the idea of being able to use this as storage for your phone or glasses so they’re right where you put them when you wake up.

Pablo Tube Top Colored Small Table Lamps

Some refreshing color options are now available on Pablo Tube Top Lamps.

“A minimalist statement in form and proportion. Tube Top combines a
transparent formed acrylic base to support its elegant mesh fabric
shade in tension, steering away from conventional modes of
construction. Its lightweight shade appears to float freely, gently
tethered by its fabric cord.”

14″H x
4.5″D 
(Shade is 9 inches wide. Base is 4.6 inches wide)

Full range dimmer on cord.

I-Club Table Lamp

The veneer used for the lampshade is quite lovely- that paired with the oblong shape makes for an altogether interesting light source.

“Hand made, its elegant and compact design is equipped with T-5 technology to ensure a minimum of energy consumption. In this way the ‘CLUB’ family achieves a duality between the warmth of ambient lighting and the illuminating power of fluorescent lights.”

Finishes available are white ash, cherry, red, green and grey tulip wood.

Shade: 15.7l x 2.8h, Total Height: 13.8h

Daedalus Lamp by Tord Boontje

Quite similar to the
Icarus Light, the Daedalus utilizes the same overlapping feather shapes yet provides soft lighting for tabletops.

“Activate or dim this dramatic sculptural light with a gentle touch to the chrome base. Inspired by the Greek mythological inventor, Daedalus, the shade is made of a white mylar polyester with a base of satin-plated steel. Requires one 60-watt bulb (not included). Simple assembly required.”

8.5″diam.

Translucent Bird Lamp

This lamp is really kind of strange: it’s pretty modern, yet the bird (to me) doesn’t quite make sense. To make things even more confusing, I think I like it more because of that.

“Light and airy enough to fit into traditional, classic style, yet this clear lamp reminds us of Philippe Starck’s modern Louis Ghost Chair. We love how the clear glass not only reveals its own light but also reflects its luminous surroundings.”

6.5″dia x 20.5″h
