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.

Bulbcap

This is a quick and easy way to dress up a bare lightbulb…

The Bulbcap is a lampshade, slightly more than a lightbulb. The caps are directly pulled over the lightbulbs of up to 40 watts. Any wattage can work when using economical lightbulbs. The Bulbcaps can be fixed on hanging bulbs from the ceiling, or on standing lamps of any kind. Mix and match various colors to create a collage of lights!

Honey Lamps by Donegani and Lauda

This collection of Honey Lamps is on sale (almost half off).

‘This is a system of light elements built around diffused light, designed on a modular transparent structure, of theoretically unlimited extension, like “Brancusi’s Endless” column. The texture of the triangular components, in a honey comb structure and micro-prismatic, directs the distribution of the light flow through the interior of the structure. The system is composed of three basic components, assembled together in a clip-on process (the elements are a triangle as diffuser, a square as frame and a crown as the cover) as well as the rod iron legs for the base. The assembly operations, which are extremely simple and require no additional tools, are left to the user. By using the components available in the system, it is possible within the required dimensions, to choose from several lamp alternatives.’

Birzi Table Lamp

Now, $100 for a lamp that’s hard to break sounds like a good deal to me, plus, you can change it up now and then by bending it any which way you like.

‘Birzi is an ironic and playful light, designed to be “mistreated”, deformed and touched. Made of silicone, this lamp takes on different shapes and sizes according to the user’s whim. Easy to use and position, it is bump and fall resistant. The different colors- white, orange and green flatter its silhouette, giving it a dynamic and contemporary look.’

Design by Carlo Forcolini and Giancarlo Fassina, 2004.

Dimensions 6″D X 10″H.
Uses 1 X 60W 120V E12 (candelabra base) G16.5 incandescent lamp (not included).
