Table Lighting

Globo & Bolio Base Lamp

As you can see from the pictures above, one of these lamps can be used outdoors while the other is most certainly indoor only. They’re both very simple globe designs upgraded into fantastic lighting choices simply by adding color filters and metal accents.

Trovato Diamond Lights

The faceted surface of these lights are pretty eye catching. I’d say they look a tad more expensive than they are as well.

“Roland Simmons blends unique design with grounded practicality in the Trovato lighting collection. Designed to enhance any room, the Trovato features a DuraSilk™ shade, an opalescent material extruded from post-industrial polyethylene resin, making it an environmentally-friendly choice.”

Both 26″ height and 35″ height lamps have a 6″ square base
For all Trovato lights, 60-watt bulbs are recommended

26″h, $185.00
35″h, $212.00

FF Light Brick

This light does double duty; not only will it light up your room, it’ll also warm it up on cooler days…

The FF [Light Brick] gives off a warm glow in your room. The brick conveniently stores the heat energy and radiates it even one hour after the light is turned off. Separate the two elements and use the brick as a bed warmer! The lamp comes with a 2 meter long black textile cable with fitting, switch and plug. The brick is fitted with a felt underlay.

Manufacturer: Formfjord

Hono Light

Check this out: what functions essentially as a candle is actually an LED. That in itself is nothing particularly new, but this flickering light has a magnetic “match” which turns it on or off.

The Hono Light (2005) combines the warm ambient glow of a candle with advancements in LED technology to create an “object that fascinates us in a moment.” This is Chiaki Murata’s goal for everything in his product line, Metaphys. When lit, Hono flickers like candlelight, with a “flame” produced by an algorithm-programmed LED. Turn it on or off by gently striking a magnetic “match” on the lamp’s surface. The light can also be blown out, like a candle, and will automatically turn back on after 10 seconds. Able to be safely affixed to a wall, Hono has some advantages over traditional wax. It comes with a charger, and one 15-hour charge will keep Hono illuminated for eight hours.

Designer: Chiaki Murata for Metaphys

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.’

Light with a Dish by Naoto Fukasawa

The simplicity of Naoto Fukasawa’s work is why he’s my favorite designer.

“Most people, when they get home, go through the exact same ritual: turn on the lights, put down your keys and empty your pockets. Made to complement both your decor and your lifestyle, the Light with a Dish is the perfect accessory for your daily routine, addressing all these activities in one clean and simple design.”
